THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 3 M A Y 2 0 1 7 351 northeast buttress of Mount Slesse (2429 m) (1982), the west face of Overseer (2749 m) (1985) and the west buttress of South Howser (3364 m) (1991), and numerous minor routes in southwest British Columbia. He was the founding director and president of the Climbers’ Access Society of B.C. (1995–2007), and the executive director of the Federation of Mountain Clubs of B.C. (1991–1994). He has climbed and volunteered extensively in Yosemite National Park and in 2014 was named the “Yosemite Facelift Volunteer of the Year”.54 He is the author of A Climber’s Guide to the Squamish Chief and a forthcoming history of climbing in the Squamish area, as well as co-editor of A Guide to Climbing and Hiking in Southwest B.C.55 He has also written articles on climbing in Mountain Magazine, Canadian Alpine Journal and Alpinist. While not a mountaineer in the same league as most of those mentioned, author David Crerar is the co-author of the forthcoming The Glorious Peaks of Vancouver’s North Shore: A Peak Bagger’s Guide, a guide to the routes and history of the 67 North Shore and Howe Sound peaks south of Capilano Mountain.56 In 2009 he started the Bagger Challenge, an amiable contest to see who can climb the most North Shore peaks in a season.57 Wesley Mussio is an enthusiastic mountaineer and the co-author and editor of the popular and omnipresent Backroad Mapbook: Outdoor Recreation Guide series, which sets out peaks and routes for most of British Columbia.58 Few people explored the territory between Vancouver and Gold Bridge more extensively than did Chuck Harrison. He wrote hundreds of trip reports on his adventures for the leading local hiking webpage, <www.Clubtread.com>. Chuck died just before this article was published, and the authors dedicate this article to him. Finally, several lawyers spend more time in the mountains than they probably wish to, rescuing hikers and climbers in trouble. Ryan Morasiewicz, Curtis Jones and Kevin Tilley are responder volunteers with North Shore Rescue; Garry Mancell is with Coquitlam SAR; and Don Blakely is with Vernon SAR. This is a far-from complete list, but rumours are that the following are or have been active mountaineers, and may have an adventure or two of which to tell: Mr. Justice Elliott Myers,59 Judge William Rodgers,60 Judge Michael Hubbard,61 Stephen Schachter, Q.C.,62 Ray Schachter, Q.C., David Roberts, Q.C., J.J.

Sutherland, David Wotherspoon,68 Pat Haberl,69 Greg Diamond, Corey Steinberg,70 Lisa Rae, Adam Campbell,71 Todd Gerhardt,72 Brad M.
