One that you have to do if you are visiting. It's a challenging route and can often be quite slippery but it is well worth it when you get to the peak. The first peak is the aim to get the view you need but head to the other two peaks as well to complete the challenge! If you can... More

This is a climbing rock. Unfortunately we saw it in the rain so no one was climbing. This was a nice stop on our way from Whistler to Vancouver.

It's a very steep hike up to the top but the views are worth it! The Chief is a huge granite dome that overlooks Squamish and the rewards for the hike is one of the best viewing platforms imaginable!
