Rock Climbing Photo: Central BC Rock

Central BC Rock



Lyle Knight, Elaho Publishing
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

Now a little out-of-date, but still the essential reference for the BC interior areas such as Yak Peak, Kelowna, and all the smaller crags that deserve attention but don't quite have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

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?
