Sport Climbs continues to be the most relevant climbing guide to the Canadian Rockies on the market. Featuring over 2,000 routes located throughout the Bow Valley, including climbs at Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, Kananaskis Country and the Ghost River area, this edition features three new areas and the latest updates and is illustrated with over 300 topos, along with accompanying maps and photos. All routes include difficulty classifications and are completely indexed, including first-ascent information. With more than 12,000 copies sold to date, Sport Climbs in the Canadian Rockies is the quintessential guidebook that both local and visiting climbers reach for when travelling to western Canada.

About the Authors

John Martin, a Calgary native, is an environmental consultant and the author of 13 climbing guides. He has been climbing in the Rockies since 1963 and developing sport routes there since 1983. John lives in Calgary, Alberta.

Jon Jones started rock climbing on the gritstone edges of his native England at the age of 15. Now a recently retired university geology instructor, he spends his time rock climbing in the Rockies, the Okanagan and, when winter arrives, in Australia and other warm places.
