About the Author
David Crerar grew up on the lower slopes of Mount Seymour and now lives on the lower slopes of Grouse Mountain. In 2009 he created the Bagger Challenge, a contest to see who could climb the most North Shore peaks in a season. Since then over 400 people have participated in the contest, and that project led to this book.
Harry Crerar attends Mulgrave School in West Vancouver. He has won the Harry Quaich for baggers younger than 16 in the Bagger Challenge every year of its existence. He has climbed most of these North Shore peaks. He loves travel and adventures: hiking, on skis or in a kayak or canoe.
Bill Maurer grew up in East Vancouver and began climbing in his late teens. He quickly established a reputation as a peakbagger, earning the nickname “do it in a day Maurer,” making day trips of what used to be weekend club excursions. Since moving to the North Shore in 1993 he has been extensively exploring the trails, swimming the lakes and bagging the peaks in his backyard.

There’s so much to learn about the North Shore mountains in its pages. I’m going to be reading this tome for a long time. I also appreciate the authors citing my newly released book, 105 Hikes in and Around Southwestern British Columbia (105Hikes.com), as a useful resource.
Here’s to getting to know better the mountains we see everyday.
I also really appreciate the history of the North Shore having gazed at old maps in the past wondering the back story. This book fills that void. As well, I appreciate all the different ratings like "kid friendly", "dog friendly", "difficulty", "runnability" as well as estimates for time. Route link ups are great too as it gives me multiple options to explore many peaks. I enjoyed the book so much I purchased the digital copy as well to have it with me anywhere!
If you have any interest in hiking the North Shore and want current & comprehensive resource, this is a no brainer and must have in your library!
This book also makes a great gift.
