Let's leave the JC appreciation thread for the book launch (might rustle up a few book sales, too). But if anyone on this forum has JC stories, I know that Lisa would like to hear them. Same with photos. She's over in Ireland right now, researching John's roots.

The legendary outdoorsman known as Mountain Goat or Xwexwselkn to the Squamish First Nation for his tussled white hair and climbing skills has officially been honoured with a mountain in his name on B.C.'s south coast.

Mount John Clarke has been accepted by the province as the name for a 2,306-metre-high peak located southwest of Sims Creek and northeast of Princess Louisa Inlet that had informally been known as Sun Peak.

So it's finally official.

Discovered this in the 'archives':

Complete with driving directions from Seattle for the cartographically challenged!
The article is by Keith Gunnar who was an excellent photographer as you shall see. Summit's photo repro was not great; I would like to see the originals.

OK, Bmacdaddy, your wish is my scan. There was a page of four color photos but they were reproed very poorly in the mag so I didn't bother.
This issue also had a Bjornstad article on mud nailin' in the Fisher Towers and an 'informative' article "Which Stove Will You Carry", and an article on a FA at Tahquita (Jonah). I suppose I'll have to scan a couple of those.

The North Vancouver Museum & Archives has now scanned and posted historical BC mountain photos. "Mountain Light is a selection of photographs, taken by notable BC mountaineers. The images are all from the British Columbia Mountaineering Club’s archival collection which was transferred to the North Vancouver Archives in 2012. This display provides a sampling of the depth of that collection." See http://www.nvma.ca/collections8.htm
