Description

The AMO Wall is a fun area with excellent moderate multi-pitch slab climbing. The Advanced Military Operations (AMO) Wall is north (left) of Shannon Falls and is approached from the same parking area, but follows a path toward the falls and past the gift shop, whereas the Shannon Falls area is approached by walking south out of the parking lot. Routes on the AMO Wall are mostly bolted and multi-pitch with fixed anchors, but are difficult to see due to the forest of trees and lush vegetation.

Getting There

From the Shannon Falls parking lot hike past the gift shop and turn left at the fork. Continue north to another fork in the path and take the gravel path, toward the Chief. Look for a faint climbers trail just north of the dry streambed, marked with orange tape. Follow the trail through the forest as it curves around and eventually leads south to the base of the AMO Wall.

There are lots of routes here to keep one busy for a very full day. Check out the 2012 Squamish guidebook for more info. These are almost all friction routes varying from 5.7 through 10s and are very well protected and bolted. We climbed here yesterday and had an absolute blast. The third tier wall has at least 2, 5.7, 2, 5.8, 2. 5.9. Jul 22, 2014
