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.

Climbing Season

For the Squamish area.

Left-leaning finger and hand crack up the gently overhanging wall to the left of Mouth of Madness. Strong moves up the crack lead to a brutal boulder problem clearing a small alcove near the top. Finish on dirty, flaring fists....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
