The Climbers Guide to the Rocky Mountains of Canada
Vol 2. Rockies Central
David P. Jones
This is the spectacular first volume (the first to be published) of Dave Jones’ epic journey to chronicle all the alpine climbs of the Canadian Rockies. Rockies Central covers the Canmore to Lake Louise to Golden region, and south to Kananaskis. There are 560 pages of glorious photos and detailed text descriptions that describe the great and famous routes on world-renowned mountains, and hundreds of little-known moderate ridges up lovely peaks where climbers are rarely seen. It is a guide for all climbers and scramblers.
This climbers’ guidebook, intended as the first of four volumes describing the peaks and climbs of the Rockies, covers the compact central region from Banff and Canmore to the east, Golden to the west, Kananaskis Lakes in the south, and Lake Louise to the north. This is the cultural and economic heartland of mountain life in Canada, hence the release of this volume as the first of the four.
