Description

From Kevin McLane's 'Alpine Select':

Sky Pilot is a fine craggy peak southeast of Squamish, the highest summit for some distance. Although it has little interest in the way of rock routes, there are two good mountaineering climbs up the east and west flanks. Easily day-tripped, an ascent of the East Face and descent of the West Buttress is the best outing on the mountain. The First acsent of this peak was made in 1910 by Basil Darling, H. Dowler, A. Morkill, J. Haggard, and Grubbe. There is no clear record of the first ascents of the climbs described.

Getting There

Same approach as for Mt. Habrich. Two options exist:

(1) Stawamus-Indian FSR: From highway Highway 99 below the Chief, exit onto the Mamquam FSR. Turn right after 3.9 km onto the Stawamus-Indian FSR (4WD). Follow the road uphill (you're in a watershed here) for a further 1.5 km, then turn right (400m after the bridge over the river) onto the Shannon Creek branch. This leads up steeply behind the Chief and eventually reaches a Forest Service Blockade, 9 km from the highway. Continue on the road unil you reach the gondola area and follow the signs for Sky Pilot.

(2) Take the Sea-to-Sky gondola to the gondola area and follow the signs for sky pilot.
