With over 50 years of combined climbing experience between them, authors and Gripped magazine editors Brandon Pullan and David Smart have spent countless hours debating and reviewing Canadian climbs to settle on the routes chosen for this book.
The book focuses on 50 multi-pitch routes, the best ones in their area based on history, exposure, grade, approach, location and a number of other factors.
The book is divided into two sections: Western Canada with British Columbia, Alberta and Yukon; and Eastern Canada with Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.

Northern Stone profiles an equal number of multi-pitch routes in both western and eastern Canada, something no climbing guide has ever done.
Brandon Pullan is the author of the award-winning The Bold and Cold published by Rocky Mountain Books.
And David Smart has a number of published books to his name, including A Youth Wasted Climbing, also published by Rocky Mountain Books.
Northern Stone will be published by Rocky Mountain Books and available summer 2019.
