Scott Nelson #115
(Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)  
Here I am after descending the N. Arete of Wedge Mountain
I graduated in 2003 from UBC Engineering Physics but I'm still a VOCer at heart. I enjoy backcountry skiing, hiking, mountaineering, alpine climbing and even a little cragging in squamish now and again.

Lately I've become very involved with a VOC project to establish a cleared and flagged winter route form roe creek to the brew hut. You can read about this project at
