June 2021 Guidebook Reprint
Beginning in 1998, I spent a considerable amount of time scrambling in the South Coast. Click here for scrambling trip reports by the author. This resulted in the self published guidebook “Scrambles in Southwest British Columbia” which was released in 2004. Over time a number of changes to the routes in the book have occurred, click here for some updates for the routes in the book. The guidebook has been out of print for several summers but after receiving numerous request I have completed a small reprint of the original text. The book was for sale exclusively on this website but the copies I reprinted have now sold out. If you are interested in getting a copy please sign up on this page and I will contact you if and when there are more copies.
