Beginning in 1998, I have spent a considerable amount of time scrambling in the South Coast. This resulted in the self published gudiebook “Scrambles in Southwest British Columbia” which was released in 2004.

Scrambling is the middle ground between hiking and mountaineering. It offers access to incredible wilderness summits without using ropes or advanced climbing techniques. In this guide, experienced hikers and mountaineers will find a wide range of route difficulties, from trails leading to summits, to challenging snow and rock ascents. Explore the spectacular peaks of the rugged Coast Mountains of Southwest British Columbia!
