Inhaltsangabe: Along British Columbia's western edge from the Alaska panhandle to Vancouver stretches a vast alpine wilderness that ranks as one of the largest and least known on earth. Hidden in the mists beyond the heads of long, dark inlets, this sea of mountains is so isolated that hundreds of major peaks remain unnamed and much of the territory was unexplored until the closing decades of the twentieth century. Vancouver mountaineer John Baldwin, often teamed with his fellow climber John Clarke, has spent twenty-five years exploring and photographing this measureless wilderness, registering an incredible 250-plus first ascents and pioneering some epic ski traverses in the process.
Together, Baldwin, Clarke and their teams have carried out a program of dicovery that has few parallels in the history of mountaineering, and Mountains of the Coast allows the public to share the high points of their astounding experience for the first time.
Here are accounts of sudden blizzards, rumbling glaciers and month-long ski traverses over crevasse-mined icefields, side by side with peaceful scenes of alpine flowers and unexpected encounters with mountain goats and grizzly bears.
Baldwin describes the careful planning that goes into each expedition, the special freindships that develop among dedicated climbers, and the thrill of being the first human beings ever to set foot on a remote mountain peak.
Most memorable, Mountains of the Coast unveils the severe beauty of these wild places, revealing page after page of unimaginably spectacular landscapes, many of which have never before been recorded on film. Mountains of the Coast is a breathtaking journey into an unknown world that will appeal to mountain climbers, outdoor enthusiasts and armchair explorers alike.
Über den Autor: John Baldwin, a Vancouver mountaineer and nature photographer with over 250 first ascents to his credit, has pioneered more than a dozen long ski traverses in remote areas of the Coast Mountains, having literally skied from Bella Coola to Vancouver. He is the author of Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis and Backcountry Whistler, and his award-winning photographs have appeared in numerous publications, including Beautiful British Columbia, Climbing, Powder, and Sierra. When not climbing mountains he works as a researcher in civil engineering at the University of British Columbia. He lives in Vancouver with his wife Eda Kadar and his two children, Stephen and Rachel.
