For ambitious newbies and hardcore climbers alike, this revised guide includes 12 new climbs. Inside are details on more than 75 of the most popular climbs in the Cascade Range. The maps are accompanied by 200 black & white photos, half with route overlays.
This edition contains a mix of walk-ups, snow climbs, scrambles, wilderness alpine routes, hard rock climbs, ice climbs, and strenuous mixed climbs. The idea of a qualitative climbing guide - one that rates climbs by appeal, not by difficulty or type of climbing - was new to the Washington Cascades when this book was first published, and climbers loved it. ** Note that this book contains more routes on more mountains than are listed here on Trails.com.
