'Select' doesn't entirely replace Island Alpine, instead this book focuses on the technical peaks and climbing routes. Island Alpine will continue to be the full guide to all (or at least most) of the mountain peaks on Vancouver Island.

So keep Island Alpine handy and if you're new to the Island mountains, well ideally both books should be on your shelf. An updated second edition to Island Alpine is underway - T.B.A.

To compliment Island Alpine Select with in-depth approach details to many of the technical peaks, and to improve the coverage of hiking trails and backcountry routes in Strathcona Park Exploring Strathcona Park is a comprehensive guide to the loop trails, day hikes and expeditions in BC's first provincial park.
