The Squamish volcanic field contains the southernmost vents of the Garibaldi volcanic belt. Late Pleistocene eruptions formed The Castle, a dramatic strongly jointed spire above the town of Squamish formed by ice contact lava extrusion (Mathews, 1958), and Watts Point, on Howe Sound south of Squamish, formed by subglacial valley floor lava extrusion. The dacite flows at Watts Point are Potassium-Argon dated at 0.09 and 0.13 million years (Green et al., 1988).
