Squamish

Anybody knows where Squamish is? We didn´t really have a clue where it was either at the beginning of the year. We knew that it is in Canada, but being such a large country it was difficult to know exactly where. We also knew that you can climb it, since we had seen it in the movies. However we weren´t aware that it is one of the sites for full time climbers, the same as Yosemite, Joshua Tree and Indian Creek. We didn´t know either that Squamish is a place where you can find all types of climbing styles from boulder to wall climbing. You can also find a very confortable camping site ten minutes from the wall and a loads of keen climbers wanting to have a good time. There´s only one bad thing- the rain. If the best cracks on the US West Coast are in Yosemite probably second best would be in Squamish. One has to go and check it out.
