Product description

Image by Michael Kanka, Squamish, BC

The great grey cliffs of Stawamus Chief Mountain, or simply “the Chief” to locals, rise over 700 metres above Squamish, BC. It is a place of spiritual significance to the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) who call the mountain Siám' Smánit in their indigenous language.

The granitic rock was initially formed approximately 100 million years ago by the slow cooling and solidification of molten magma deep below the surface of the Earth. Tremendous uplift of the land coupled with continuous erosion over millions of years has brought these deeply buried rocks to the surface. Before the glaciers of the last Ice Age started to retreat (approximately 10,000 years ago) this area was under an ice sheet more than a thousand metres thick. Today, rock climbers from around the world test their abilities on the vertical granite walls of the Chief. The cracks and crevices in the rock also provide important nesting habitat for the Peregrine Falcon.
