Description

With 15,000 copies of previous editions sold, this bestselling guide brings together 150 of Alan Kane’s favourite scrambles, starting in Waterton National Park and working up through the Crowsnest area and Kananaskis Country into the contiguous national parks of Banff, Kootenay, Yoho and Jasper. Each peak can be climbed in one day from a road or backcountry lodge.

All scrambles in the book are carefully graded and range from easy walk-ups for experienced hikers who want a little more challenge to more difficult, hands-on scrambles for more daring climbers. Each mountain is well illustrated with route photos and often a photo of the crux.

About the author

Alan Kane was born in Banff, Alberta, and grew up in Golden, British Columbia. In 1991 RMB published his original Scrambles guidebook, which to this day is almost solely responsible for the widespread popularity of non-technical mountain ascents, or scrambles, out West. When he isn’t hiking or scrambling, Alan may be found wandering along streams pursuing his other passion, fly-fishing. Alan is married to his very tolerant wife, Diana, and lives in Calgary, Alberta.
