In Canada a few days early before we hop aboard Princess Cruises. Today, we are enjoying a scenic road trip from Vancouver, B.C. to Whistler stopping at:

Now, our 2nd stop - Stawamus Chief is one of the largest granite monoliths in the world attracting rock climbing enthusiasts.

"Towering 600m (almost 2000ft) above Squamish, the Stawamus Chief is Canada's big-wall rock-climbing mecca, attracting keen rock climbers from around the world every summer. Home to hundreds of high-quality multi-pitch crack climbing routes, novice - advanced rock climbers can spend an entire summer exploring the intimidating granite walls, including the The Apron, The Grand Wall, The Slhaney and more.Dating back millions of years, the Chief stands as the 2nd tallest freestanding granite monolith in the world, after the Rock of Gibraltor." –

Gloom and Drizzle Won't Stop These Rock Climbers

I wonder if they're doing traditional rock climbing vs Via Ferrata?
