Rock Climbing Photo: Central BC Rock

Central BC Rock

Lyle Knight, Elaho Publishing

Now a little out-of-date, but still the essential reference for the BC interior areas such as Yak Peak, Kelowna, and all the smaller crags that deserve attention but don't quite have the same draw as Skaha.

Alpine Select: Climbs in Southwest British Columbia & Northern Washington

Kevin McLane, Elaho Publishing

As the title lays out, this is a book of select alpine climbs mainly in BC, but also a few in Washington. The book is interesting for being divided into a section covering all of the approaches and another covering all of the climbs. McLane writes to a high standard and this book is no exception.

There are some fairly accessible day climbs in here as well as some monsters. Would you believe that there's a 37 pitch rock route only a few hours from Vancouver?

Rock N Road

Tim Toula, Falcon Publishing

Rock N Road: An Atlas of North American Climbing Areas, is a comprehensive listing of every chunk of protruding stone on the continent. This is not a typical guidebook: there are no topos or route descriptions and only a few photos. Instead, the atlas provides a paragraph or two on each destination, with quality ratings, stats on number of climbs, and a list of the best routes. This is an essential reference item for those in search of new or less-documented crags.

Squamish Select

Marc Bourdon

The full-colour, third edition of Squamish Select features over 1,500 routes and won the best guidebook category at the 2012 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. It provides extensive coverage of Murrin Park, Shannon Falls, the Malamute, the Chief, Slhanay (the Squaw), Smoke Bluffs, Cheakamus Canyon and many other minor areas. There’s enough climbing in this book to keep you busy for years!
