Located right beside Highway 99 just south of Squamish. Stawamus Chief Mountain, known locally as "The Chief", is a granite monolith with a 450-m high vertical face. Dominating the view from nearby Squamish, it has become one of North America's premier rock climbing bluffs. It has three separate summits, which can be reached via steep trails along the back side of the face.
There are three summits, from west to east. They are labelled on the parks map as "First", "Second" and "Third". Below are the locations as determined by BC Basemap:
The first peak does not have a spot height. The actual readings for the first peak as measured with GPS by R. Bailey are:
Actual Reading: 49:40:58.0-123:08:38.6 625m (of to the left side of contour lines)

Name Notes: This is an official name, according to BC Placenames. On the 1:50,000 map, the label is spread across the three peaks, and the center peak is the only one with a survey height (2138 feet = 652m). However, the eastern peak which is 500m east of center is the highest point, 702m according to BC Basemap. The lat-long in this encyclopedia corresponds to the highest point.
