Skipped Peak 1 and proceeded on two Peak 2 and 3. Views were far better from Peak 2 even though the actual high point of The Chief is on Peak 3. Tons of people on the trail during this warm, clear, spectacularly beautiful March day.

jason_deePeak 2&3   Sucess!
Bypassed Peak 1 to hit 2&3. Good, flat lunch spots at P2. P3 is a bit of a downclimb and scramble back up. Good views on all peaks.

Probably the best view within a short drive and short hike from Vancouver. 30 minute drive and 30 minutes to the top!

Awesome climb up the backside trail. First time out did a 5hr rounder and bagged peaks 2 & 3...then came back Dec. 13th and took the conventional trail up to peak 1 with my sister for her first climb.
Will be back again in mid January to bag a snowy summit!

Traverse Trail-fantastic forest, granite, views. Boulders were exceptional as well.

Did Cruel Shoes to Mercy Me. Forgot my rock shoes so I wore a pair 3 sizes too big borrowed from my partner.

Took the tourist route up the back side with a 50lb pack. Bouldering on the green granite at the base was great. Definitely on my list for future travels!

5 successes (3 routes) getting up the impressive chief makes it a very special place to me. The last time with with Robin and Pascal in 2005.
I think Angels Crest remains my fav (once with Perry, first time starting at 1400 with Corey- awesome times!).

Three great weeks with only a couple of weather days. Ticked some real classics, highlights of which were Cruel Shoes to Grand Wall (11 pitches, 5.11a), Freeway (11 pitches 5.11d), and Alaska Highway (5 pitches, 5.11d) as well as red pointing Crime of the Century (5.11c) on the second burn.

What an awesome place to climb. Did:

Saint Vitus Dance Extra - Awesome 7 pitch linkup with Aaron and Doug (May 2009). I lead pitches 1, 4, and 6. The 5.9 pitches are a little easy for the grade, similar to Index 5.8.

Smoke Bluff Connection - Another great linkup. I lead pitch #2. Pitch #3 is the bomb.

Pixie Corner and Burgers and Fries - 2 nice single pitch cracks. Didn't like the topout on Burgers and Fries.

Klahanie Crack - Beautiful 5.7 handcrack. (2004)

AJonesRoutes climbed - 100's

AJones

I climbed in Squamish fairly frequently for about 10 years in the 80s - a few of the classic routes like "Clean Crack", "Caboose" and "Crescent Crack" are no longer open (a dam shame). My favourite route - probably "Crescent Crack", "Sunblessed", "Diedre", or "Exasperator". Actually, there's not too many bad routes there.

MichaelJSo many good routes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2008

MichaelJ

I had 8 climbing days here in September (never mind the three rainy ones) and got a lot of killer routes done, including topping out via the Millennium Falcon (14 pitches, 5.11b). But the most memorable was the day I didn't have a partner and went to free solo Diedre (5.8). I climbed up four pitches or so and thought it was really stiff for the grade and then the corner system went blank and bolts appeared on the wall and I realized I must be off route. I downclimbed the line and looked at the guidebook. Turns out I was on Unfinished Symphony (5.11b), having climbed 5.9 and 5.10 and turning around at the 5.10d section. Yikes!

AJonesRe: So many good routes

AJones

That's hillarious - the exact same thing happened to me on my first trip to Squamish (mid 80's). Sounds like we turned around in the exact same spot - we went on to climb Snake instead.

Mary and I stopped in Squamish on our drive from Calgary to Sacramento in 2008. We climbed a bunch of the classics.

July 11, 2008 -- Warmed up on Laughing Crack (5.7), then did Octopus' Garden (5.8), Pixie Corner (5.8), Penny Lane (5.9), then finished the day on the super-fun Quarryman (5.8).

July 12, 2008 -- Stared early (up at 6AM) but were still the 4th party on Diedre (5.8, 6 pitches). We got delayed on the 1st and 2nd pitch belay ledges, but afterwards, things spread out a bit. Tons of laybacking...too much laybacking...but awesome rock and a route worthy of its 5-star status.

July 14, 2008 -- Got an early start and hiked up to the top of the Apron. Climbed Boomstick Crack (5.7) in 2 pitches, then walked up and did Squamish Buttress (5.10c, 7 pitches) with a bit of aid through the crux. Finished to the top of First Peak by climbing Joe's Dike (5.7).

July 15, 2008 -- Started on Cardhu Crack (5.8), then did Kalhanie Crack (5.7) at Shannon Falls. Went to Upper Malamute and did the awesome High Mountain Woodie (5.8+) and then finished off the trip clipping bolts on Zoe (5.10a).
