Island Alpine Climbing is designed to replace Island Alpine Select as the go-to alpine climbing guidebook for Vancouver Island. The focus has been narrowed from its predecessor to only include the technical climbs and scrambles on the more challenging and popular Island peaks. Island Alpine Climbing will work especially well alongside Exploring Strathcona Park which has additional information for approaches and trip options for the peaks within Strathcona Provincial Park.
