Dean Richards #18174
(Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)  
I've arranged my lifestyle to not have to work in the summer. Usually spread between the Coast Range and Purcells/Selkirks/Rockies. Emphasis on remote, off-trail, beautiful areas, but lots of scrambling and some light mountaineering/glacier travel too. Been trying to get into areas with little enough history that I'm able to research it all afterwards and include a summary in my trip reports. Feel free to drop me a line.
