Atwell Peak - South Ridge
A dramatic pyramid shaped peak at the southern edge of the Mount Garibaldi massif. This is the peak commonly called Mount Garibaldi when viewed from Squamish, since the main peak is hidden. The rock on this mountain is very loose and rotten. It should only be climbed when coated by hard snow or ice. The two most visible routes are the north and south ridges, but the east face often offers the easiest route.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
