Jul. 11th 2013

Put on your Lumberjack attire, tighten your harness, and get ready for the 8th annual Squamish Mountain Festival (SQUMF) July 17 through 21 in British Columbia. Less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver lies one of B.C.’s world-renown climbing destinations and for five days, the area known as Squamish will be filled with climbing experts, boulderers and all-around crag-cravers.

Hosted by Arc’teryx, SQUFM offers an opportunity to inspire, unite, and celebrate the sport of climbing with others who share the same passion for a life on the rocks. Several types of climbing and bouldering clinics put on by professional guides and pro athletes, gear demos, themed parties, and off-the-rocks activities draw crowds from all over B.C. and the northwestern US.
