The 3rd annual Squamish Mountain Festival, (SQUMF) held at British Columbia's granite mecca on August 12-16, 2009, was a huge success again this year attracting climbers from all over the world. The vision of the SQUMF is to provide a grass-roots gathering to celebrate the magic of Squamish climbing, bouldering and mountain culture. Focusing mainly on climbing and its surrounding culture the event also encompasses complementary activities such as yoga, a themed party and its first ever trail run. Other highlights from this year's festival included guest speakers: Christian Begin, Peter Croft, Audrey Gariepy, Lauren Lee, Ines Papert, Ian Parnell, Will Stanhope and Simon Yates plus a film festival, photography contest (Steep Shot Photo Shoot Out), educational climbing clinics and a Dyno competition.
