Mount Shuksan - Fisher Chimneys

One of the most photographed mountains in the world, Shéqsan has bewildered humans since time immemorial. Tearing across the sky, the jagged jewel-like summit is a pyramid atop numerous glaciers atop vast waterfalls and alpine lakes. With the neighboring Kulshan complementing the stature of Shéqsan, each is deeply rooted in Northern Coast Salish culture. Climbing either mountain, any two-legged visitor will travel through the forest, sub-alpine, and finally into the alpine. Once you travel here once, you will be back in sequential years to come. 


The Fisher Chimneys route on Shéqsan offers the budding alpinist a variety of terrain types to experience and hone their skills on, including moderate rock climbing and scrambling, steep snow/ice , and glacier travel. Beginning on the mountain's west side, our team will enjoy a picturesque hike to Lake Ann, with stunning views of the climbing route. After the lake, the climbing begins. We'll ascend the rock gully systems or "chimneys" for which the route is named then navigate steep snow/ice and glaciated terrain on three different glaciers before reaching the base of the summit block, where we'll finish our ascent with the 4th class south gully or the exhilarating and exposed 5.5 SE-Ridge for 600’.
