Each year, Squamish Exposed gives six teams—a pro photographer, an athlete, and a lucky member of the public—two days to capture the essence of what it means to expose yourself to the challenges and majesty of climbing in Squamish. The events take place as part of Arc’teryx’s Climbing Academy, culminating in a head-to-head slideshow presentation to a crowd of over 600 excited and enthusiastic climbers and locals. Check out the results in the above gallery.
