Mount Shuksan | Ch'ésqen — Fisher Chimneys Testimonials

The leadership of our two guides was outstanding. They acted as teachers, guides, and climbing partners in a way that encouraged us to climb a challenging route with safety and joy.

The Fisher Chimney Shuksan climb was outstanding. The pre-climb rock review/class was super helpful and in a beautiful spot on Mt. Erie. The Shuksan route was exactly what I hoped with fantastic hiking, rock climbing, glacier travel, and camping.

Mount Shuksan was a blast! My guide’s decision making, safety systems, and experience were at the highest level. The experience was challenging, rewarding, and purely just a lot of fun.

My guide was amazing and very confident and skilled in her ability to get through the Chimneys. I really enjoyed her time… I felt like she cared strongly about not just my well being but my enjoyment.
