The Squamish Access Society is dedicated to working on behalf of climbers to protect public access to the climbing areas of the greater Squamish region, to engage as responsible stewards of the climbing environment and to advocate for access to quality self-propelled recreation. We work together with other access groups in “on the ground” initiatives and in engaging with local and provincial government and the private sector. Our work encompasses all the major climbing disciplines.



Two things to inform climbers of,

1) It is peregrine falcon nesting season now. BC Parks is asking climbers assistance in identifying potential nest sites in order to make well informed falcon closures. Our collective assistance and respecting this closure in this work really helps climber's relationship with BC Parks. There are anecdotal reports of falcons on Angel's Crest this year already. If you see falcons on the Chief this weekend please note the location and send that information to us at SAS or BC Parks biologist Joanna Hirner (

2) If you are thinking that the Longhouse might be a good place to climb this weekend SAS would like to remind you that log hauling is occurring on the Mamquam, Stawamus, and Shannon FSRs for the next two to three weeks. We advise climbers avoid use of these roads for safety reasons.

We are in the process of formulating the 2016 rebolting list and are asking the Squamish climbing community to identify routes and bolts in need of repair. As the climbing season starts please make a note of routes needing repair and submit them as a reply to this post so SAS can get working on them. Thanks. ...
