Located behind the Chief, The Cirque of the Uncrackables has the highest concentration of offwidth cragging in Squamish. There are also a few hard thin cracks here as well, including the legendary Cobra Crack.

Getting There 

Hike the North Chief Trail for about 30 minutes until it starts to get less steep. Look for the second sign to the right of the main trail. Take this trail for about 10 minutes until you get to White Cliff. The Cirque is just another 5 minutes along the trail.

To date Cobra Crack is one of the hardest crack routes in the world. Overhanging fingers on perfect granite. If you can climb the grade and enjoy cracks then the Cobra is or at least should be on your ticklist. One of the best rock climbs in the world without question.
