Island Alpine Climbing is designed to replace Island Alpine Select as the go-to alpine climbing guidebook for Vancouver Island. The focus has been narrowed from its predecessor to only include the technical climbs and scrambles on the more challenging and popular Island peaks. IAC will work especially well alongside Exploring Strathcona Park which has additional information for approaches and trip options for the peaks within Strathcona Provincial Park.

A digital eBook edition of the preceeding guidebook
Island Alpine Select is available:
for Mac & iOS from the Apple iTunes Store>
And for PC & Android at Google Play Books>

Sorry there are no current plans to release Island Alpine Climbing electronically.

To compliment Island Alpine Climbing 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 trails and backcountry treks in BC's first provincial park.
