Squamish, located at the head of Howe Sound, is home to world class rock climbing on granite cliffs that seem to poke right out of the ocean amidst a thick forest of lush, towering trees. It is also home to the annual Arc’teryx Climbing Academy. Organized and run by Arc’teryx, the event will take place July 20-23, 2017.
The line-up looks fantastic! Educational seminars and clinics with solid line-up of athletes including Will Gadd, Hazel Finley, Jonathan Siegrist, Will Stanhope, Brette Harrington, and Ines Papert. Live presentations every day with a keynote presentation by Hayden Kennedy. On top of all there there are toonie breakfasts, live music and a trade show with brands such as Arc’teryx, Scarpa, DMM, Five Ten, Camp and more.
