Rate this:

With over 50 years of combined climbing experience between them, authors Brandon Pullan and David 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, a given route had to:

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