Harry Crerar is in his senior year at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver. He has climbed the majority of the North Shore peaks. He loves travel and adventures: trail running, hiking, on skis, in a kayak or a canoe. He has adventured in many US and Canadian National Parks. With his father (and co-author) and the rest of their family, he lives on the lower slopes of Grouse Mountain, with views of Hollyburn Mountain, Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour from their back yard.
The Glorious Mountains of North Vancouver
Authors David Crerar, Harry Crerar & Bill Maurer, will present stories from their book, “The Glorious Mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore: a Peak Bagger’s Guide” (RMB: Rocky Mountain Books). Few Vancouverites know of the natural beauty and adventure that lies within them, or even their names and history. They will discuss some of the history and secrets of the peaks, including Indigenous names, cultural significance, and uses; logging and mining; watersheds and waterfalls; old growth trees; plane crashes; cached whisky; first ascents; name origins; plants; mushrooms; wildlife; and, above all, fun and adventure.
