Squamish Exposed was a new component of the Arc’teryx Climbing Academy held in Squamish BC this past weekend. Six teams, each composed of a professional photographer, an athlete, and a lucky member of the public, were given two days to capture the essence of what it means to expose yourself to the challenges and majesty of climbing in Squamish. They then went head-to-head on Saturday night to present their slideshows to a crowd of over 600 excited and enthusiastic climbers and locals.
