As we traveled across the country we kept hearing murmurs of how amazing the Squamish climbing season had been this year. No rain! As we came within striking distance of Squamish, that changed with seven straight days of rain. We spent a week seeking out the driest routes before the rain started back up again. In that time we got in the full Squamish tour, exploring Seal Cove, The Malamute, The Chief, The Papoose, The Smoke Bluffs, and Slhanay.
