Conrad Kain's First Ascents


"...In June 1909, the 25-year-old Austrian mountain guide Conrad Kain arrived in Canada with the
promise of employment as the Alpine Club of Canada’s first professional guide. Over the next
quarter century, he would register an impressive list of first ascents and original routes in
Canada and New Zealand, and he would become a role model for generations of guides and mountain
lovers following in his footsteps..."

-- From my good friends at The Conrad Kain Centennial Society, Invermere, British Columbia. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Note: Conrad Kain's autobiography, "Where The Clouds Can Go", returns to print
as a 4th edition in May, 2009. One of the great books in mountaineering literature,
it will be published by Rocky Mountain Books of Calgary, Alberta.
