Published annually since 1907, The Canadian Alpine Journal (CAJ) is the flagship publication of the ACC. It is the permanent record of the biggest ascents, finest photography and most inspiring accomplishments. The CAJ is equal parts detailed route descriptions, introspective writing, science and humour.
This is our country’s representation of the year’s climbing in all its forms from coast to coast to coast and by Canadians abroad. To the mountain community, the CAJ is a collection of writings that individually and together celebrate the precious value and the infinite possibilities of life in the mountains.
