There is major new exposure and push do do the HP's of Canada. Check out the sexy new website at summitsofcanada.ca. A strong group of Canadian climbers plans to climb 10 HP's of Canada this year, and finish next year with the big three (Mt. Logan, Mt. Fairweather & Barbeau Peak). They have strong sponsorship, are linked to schools and educational inst., and are plugged in to government cooperation.

They also have plans to do very sensitive measurement of elevations along the way, and are in cooperation with NWT with plans to rename Mt. Nirvana. I'm not sure I can agree with that goal. But it's about time the Canadian HP's get some recognition. They are certainly diverse, spectacular, and challenging.

Jack's first completion of the 13 provinces/territories of Canada is taking a long time to repeat; longer than the 50-states.

Jack - Feel free to submit an article to the HP Club magazine about Canada; your pursuit, the latest efforts, or the HPs themselves.
