Description

A unique, standalone crag in the Garibaldi Highlands which features a handful of burly splitter cracks of very high quality on vertical to overhanging rock. Despite the short approach, the crag has an isolated atmosphere and is rarely crowded. It is shady and pleasant during the hot summer days. The rock at Highlander is more coarse-grained than in much of Squamish and there are still many loose crystals. A lot of work has gone into cleaning and equipping this crag, props to the developers. Expect solid grades and good gear.

Getting There

Park at the cul-de-sac at the end of Perth drive, but respect the residents of the neighbourhood and avoid the west side of the street. Take a faint trail from the north-east end of the parking area which quickly heads down-hill and across a stream. Up the other side and you're there, 2-minute approach.

Note that this area is a rare example of a Squamish cliff on private land (most are in designated parks or in crown land). The landowner has occasionally attempted to fence off his land. squamishchief.com/news/loca… May 2, 2018
