Dr. Carr has been honing his rock climbing skills this summer in preparation for an expedition to climb Cartstensz Pyramid. Favorable training ground for more technical rock climbing is found on the west coast, namely the Stawamus Chief, often referred to as simply “The Chief”. The Chief is a granite dome located adjacent to the town of Squamish, British Columbia. It towers over 700m (2,297ft) above the waters of nearby Howe Sound. It is often cliamed to be the “second largest granite monolith in the world”.
