Teacup Handle

The Teacup Handle can be seen on the right side of this photo of The Table in Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia. The height of the opening is estimated at 80 feet. The flat-topped mountain was formed during the last ice age when lava bubbled up into the overlying ice, forming a mold for the magma which subsequently solidified. Today this mountain is almost impossible to climb because sections have collapsed, creating steep and exceptionally rotten rock walls on all sides. The Teacup Handle has reportedly never been climbed. Photo taken from the summit of Mt. Price by Marek Labecki, courtesy of www.bivouac.com, the Canadian Mountain Encyclopedia.
