Towards the Unknown Mountains

an autobiography from the Canadian wilderness frontier
by Rob Wood, foreword by Doug Scott

From youthful days in the hills of Britain and big wall climbing in Yosemite, the author's search for unique mountain adventure leads him to pioneering ice climbs in the Canadian Rockies and to new routes on Baffin Island and in the BC Coast Range. Here Rob Wood focuses on winter ascents of Mt Waddington and Mt Colonel Foster in Strathcona Park, where he learns how the survival message can be used to help save this pristine wilderness from industrial enchroachment.

The author suggests this is exactly what society needs to learn, in order to survive the unknown risks of the environmental crisis it now faces.
