British Columbia Mountaineering Club. With the club’s having finally completed the Guidebook to the Coastal Ranges of British Columbia, members went a long way toward making it obsolete by putting up a variety of new routes and ascending some 40 new peaks. Batzer Hut, the first in a series of mountain shelters of a special parabolic design, was erected in the Lucky Four Group. Two club camps were held successfully and were open to non-members. "Expedition Camp” accounted for 13 first ascents on the northern fringe of Monarch Icecap. Next year the camp will be held in the Pantheon Group north of the Waddington area. Members also participated in expeditions to Mount Kennedy, the Monarch massif, Lillooet Icecap, Hurley River country, and a long exploration of the little known ranges of the Terrace and Douglas Channel map sheets. Sixty-two week-end trips were scheduled, and a 15% increase in attendance was recorded. Provision has been made for compiling corrections and additions to the new guidebook and for supplying current information on the Coastal Ranges. Correspondence in this regard is invited and should be sent to the club at Box 2674, Vancouver, B.C.
