Washingtonand39;s Highest Mountains Basic Alpine and Glacier Routes  by Peggy Goldman
Washington’s Highest Mountains is a remarkable compendium of the most doable climbing routes up the highest peaks in the state, known informally as the “Bulger Top 100.” The summits of these peaks have, until recently, been the realm of a small number of gritty climbers. Peggy Goldman has written this book for climbers of all abilities, but especially those “average mountaineers” wishing to increase their skills and expand their horizons in the Washington Cascades’ challenging terrain. The 35 trips in this book, covering 61 distinct peaks, encompass alpine and glacier climbs ranging from class 3 to class 5.
