Star Chek is a classic Squamish-area rock climbing route that starts at the Cheakamus River and climbs three pitches of granite, each pitch becoming gradually more difficult. The Cheakamus River below runs from the mountains in Garibaldi Provincial Park through the Cheakamus Canyon and meets up with the Squamish River just north of the town of Squamish.
Not recommended for first time climbers, although multi-pitch climbing experience is not required. If you are new to climbing we suggest booking Single-Pitch Climbing instead.
