Written to commemorate the centenary of the Alpine Club of Canada's Vancouver Island Section this book contains transcripts of journal entries, diaries and newspaper accounts of early ascents of some of the most prominent mountains on Vancouver Island. In addition, Elms has written about the rich, and sometimes forgotten, climbing history of many important mountains to the climbing community: the Mackenzie Range, Nine Peaks, Mariner Mountain, Rambler Peak, Mount Cobb, Conuma Peak, Victoria Peak and more. It recognizes the depth and breadth of the unique breed of climbers found on Vancouver Island - those willing to perserve with the primeval vegatation to get to the wonderful alpine playground above the bush.
