Adventure Information

Join one of our professional IMFGA Mountain Guides for a trip that focuses on technical climbing routes in the classic Tantalus Range.

On this tour, guests will stay at the Jim Haberl Hut in the high alpine, giving you access to the finest routes in the range. You have access to ascents of Mount Tantalus, Serratus, Alpha, and Dione.

Duration: 3 days

Meet at either the MSAA office or the Squamish Heli-Port.

Once at the hut, we will drop off our baggage and then we get a quick heli-lift to access our first route.

Upon returning to the hut, we have a great supper and social gathering to plan for the next day’s adventure.

At the end of the trip, we fly back to the Squamish Heli-port.

If weather conditions cause us to be unable to fly, we will arrange an alternative date with you or offer an alternative product for the same day that does not require the use of a helicopter (in this instance any costs associated with the helicopter will be refunded).
