Spread between Vancouver Island, Coast Range, Cascades, Purcells, Selkirks, and 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.
