Squamish hosts some of the best rock climbing in North America.
This page doesn't attempt to replace a guidebook, but rather serves as a quick overview of what type of climbing trips are possible.
Boasts tons of top-rope accessible climbs. The climbing here is a mix of excellent splitter cracks and friction slabs. Some of the most popular crags within the area are Neat and Cool, Burgers and Fries, Funarama, Octopus' Garden
There's tons of quality sport climbing if you know where to go
Moderate to hard sport, including the famous Petrifying Wall.
Area 44 / The Pillary
Lots of reasonably bolted easy-to-moderate sport climbing. A decent number of 5.9s, a few lower grades and LOTS of 10s.
A giant area with tons of sport, ranging from 5.8 multipitch climbs all the way up to 5.14. Allows for no-cost car-camping and campfires.
You're a trad climber? Welcome to paradise. Rather than list where you should go, let's just say that Area 44 and Cheakamus have barely any trad. Everywhere else has absolutely stellar climbing. Do a bunch of top-100 single pitch climbs in Murrin or the Bluffs, or do some awesome multi-pitch climbs up the Chief.
