Local Vancouver climber Rich Wheater has been a pillar in the climbing community for as long as I can remember. Although Rich himself would argue the above statement, his photos of rock climbing in British Columbia have inspired many a climber throughout the years. Lets just say, it would be an odd sight not see Rich in a Squamish or Skaha parking lot during the climbing season (beer in hand of course!).
Over the past year, Rich has been on a mission to document the vast array of climbing on the North Shore of Vancouver. Set to be released in SPRING 2015 (according to the website at Quickdraw publications), Rich’s findings will surely shock and awe a number of people in the Vancouver climbing community. Closer to its release, Squamish Climbing Magazine hopes to catch up with Rich for an in depth look. For now, here has a sneak peak at some of the photographs Rich has taken over the past few years of the North Shore. Hopefully, these images inspire you during the next few months of monsoon before the sun comes out again.
