A stunning, full-colour climbing guide that focuses on 65 of Canada's best rock climbs.

With over 50 years of combined climbing experience between them, authors Brandon Pullan and David Chaundy-Smart have spent countless hours debating and reviewing Canadian climbs to settle on the routes chosen for this book. In order to make the list, the route:

is popular enough to be well-travelled, have fixed protection and established descents is climbable by the average weekend warrior (no harder than 5.11a) must be climbable in a day from your campsite or car has played a role in the history of Canadian climbing does not require crampons or ice axes

Divided into two sections -- Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta and Yukon) and Eastern Canada (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland-Labrador) -- Northern Stone profiles an equal number of routes in both western and eastern Canada (something no climbing guide has ever done).

Along with maps and a healthy selection of photos showing the route, each climb includes:

information on local accommodation, food, climbing gyms and alternative climbs access notes, approach info, grade, length and pitch-by-pitch descriptions seasonal info and gear notes first ascent information author commentary GPS coordinates

This unique guidebook will be a valuable resource for climbers looking for satisfying day trips to some of this country's more popular routes.
