"Scrambles targets a relatively new breed of weekend warrior: the person wanting more physical challenge than a typical hike offers, but not enough that climbing experience and gear are necessary." -- Calgary Herald
"This book blew away all my expectations. This is the finest mountain guidebook I've ever seen. Pictures for every mountain and great descriptions. Bravo!" -- Matt Kirk, reader
Alan Kane was born in Banff, Alberta, and grew up in Golden, British Columbia. In 1991 RMB published his original Scrambles guidebook, which to this day is almost solely responsible for the widespread popularity of non-technical mountain ascents, or scrambles, out West. When he isn’t hiking or scrambling, Alan may be found wandering along streams pursuing his other passion, fly-fishing. Alan is married to his very tolerant wife, Diana, and lives in Calgary, Alberta.
