Classic routes, aesthetic granite lines, stunning summits, majestic glaciers: The Bugaboos have it all. The area is also home to two of the famous ’50 Classic Climbs of North America’: The uber classic NE Ridge of Bugaboo Spire (5.8) and the iconic Beckey-Chouinard route on South Howser Tower (5.10c). We’ve been heading into the Bugaboos every year for almost a decade and the place still calls us back!

Lift Accessed Alpine Climbing on Blackcomb Buttress! A short walk from the top of the ski lift this alpine ridge offers great views of the area’s glaciers, lakes and mountains. The route has climbing in the 5.4 range, a roomy summit and an easy walk back down to the lift for a ride back to the valley. A very civilized and fun way to spend a day in Whistler!
At 2895m the aptly named Wedge Mountain is the highest summit in the Garibaldi Ranges and, of course, Garibaldi Park. If you’ve ever been to Whistler you have undoubtedly seen this towering peak. What you haven’t seen is the beautiful lakes and glaciers that hide on it’s northern flanks or the amazing summit views.
On a clear day the iconic Mt. Assiniboine is visible from all over the SE corner of BC as it towers over the adjacent peaks. Reminiscent of the Matterhorn, the majestic peak doesn’t offer an easy scramble to the top! The most common route is up the North Ridge, this 3,000ft feature is steep and intimidating but not too technically difficult.
The Bella Coola valley on the west coast of British Columbia offers a mind boggling spectrum of largely unclimbed ice.
