As climbers we often recognize the first ascent of any boulder, route, or peak; and as such we find it also important to pay respect to the true first ascensionists of the area, the Mi'kmaq people. Granite Guides operates and adventures on the beautiful lands of Mi'kma'ki, the unceded ancestral territory of the Mi'kmaq people. We recognize and honour the Mi'kmaq as the original stewards of this land and are dedicated to empowering a dignified relationship between climbers, the land, and the Mi'kmaq nation that continues to live and climb along side us.
