Arc’teryx Equipment is proud to present the Squamish Mountain Festival, a grass roots gathering to celebrate the magic of Squamish climbing, bouldering and mountain culture. The event will take place July 13 – 21 in Squamish, British Columbia. The festival will highlight Squamish and climbing within the context of clinics, speakers, competitions, international adventure films, volunteer trail maintenance days, and of course, huuuuge raging parties.

This year’s speakers include: Ron Kauk, Tommy Caldwell, Ines Papert, Kevin McLane, Perry Beckham, Josune Bereziartu, and Will Gadd.
