This unique guidebook brings together in a single collection 1300 of the great rockclimbs of Western Canada, one of the world's most beautiful climbing destinations. Canadian Rock is a dream book for road-trippers, with rock climbing of every kind from small valley crags to great days on alpine rock. The climbs range across Squamish, British Columbia and Alberta, covering sport crags to long multi-pitch and alpine crags, on granite, quartzite, gneiss and limestone. Famous centres like Squamish, Skaha, Lake Louise, and the great mountain crags of the Alberta Rockies are covered, and scores of little-known jewels and quiet places.
The guide covers an area of 1000km from west to east, from the Pacific rainforest, to near-desert conditions in central British Columbia, to the magnificent Rockies. Over 70 different climbing areas are described, covered by more than 800 colour photos and topos, colour-coded with innovative features not seen elsewhere in a climbers guidebook. If you want to explore great new areas, or experience some of the best climbing you’ll ever encounter, this is the guide for you. 384 pages.
