Mount Tantalus

About the Climb

An imposing mountain that looms over the Squamish River, Mount Tantalus’ majesty is rivaled only by its remoteness. After a short helicopter ride to the Jim Haberl Hut, an afternoon is spent training near the hut. The next day involves an alpine start and a 10 to 12 hour ascent of the Southeast Spur (II 5.5). After another night at the hut, the helicopter comes back to whisk you back to town. Consider booking an extra day or two for inclement weather or options to climb Serratus, Dione or other excellent peaks in the Tantalus Range.
