About the Author

Toiling over old topos, maps, photos and gathering all the knowledge of every climber in the Jasper area that can give me their time, my dream was to give this National Park the worldwide climbing recognition it deserves and a guidebook that would serve the purpose of allowing people easy access to some of the best climbing in the Canadian Rockies.

The main goal is to attract more climbers into the Park to enjoy this rock as much as I do. During that project, my days were spent either on my laptop editing, climbing, taking photos for the guidebook, climbing, gathering notes and information, climbing, doing more work on my laptop and occasionally climbing.

So come on out to Jasper. Enjoy everything from the beautiful limestone cliffs of Hidden Valley to the bomber quartzite of Lost Boys; from Maligne Valley’s boulders to the amazing alpine climbs of Edith Cavell. Oh and find me in town or more likely at the crags and tell me what you think.

More importantly, tell your friends…

Several years has passed since the publication of the first edition of this guidebook. I am now an ACMG certified rock guide working for Rockaboo Mountain Adventures in the heart of Jasper. You can find me guiding or climbing around the park, repeating routes or establishing first ascents. My personal goal is to keep the stoke for this magical place. See you on the rock!
