Hikers, scramblers, serious climbers and Northwest rescue organizations, alike, have relied on Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guides for decades to lead them through this wild mountain range. In addition to their comprehensiveness, the books provide a rare combination of aerial photos with route overlays, three-dimensional illustrated maps, and climbing topos.

The section of the North Cascades covered in this volume is roughly a pie-shaped area in the northern section of the range, stretching from the Lake Chelan area up into Canada and west to Bellingham. Except for glaciers and some year-round snow fields, it's mostly dry, lonesome, open country, with beautiful granite spires jutting to the sky.

  • Author Fred Beckey lends his extensive knowledge gleaned from a lifetime of climbing and studying the peaks and valleys of the Cascade Mountains
  • Black-and-white photographs and sketches with routes superimposed support the text; notes on history, geology and environment are also included

About the Author

FRED BECKEY has achieved enduring recognition as the most imaginative, persistent, and thorough explorer and mountain investigator of the Cascade Range Wilderness. He was noted as "one of America's most colourful and eccentric mountaineers," and is unofficially recognized as the all-time world-record holder for the number of first ascents credited to one man. In addition to being the author of the Cascade Alpine Guide series (V1, V2, V3), Beckey is also the author of Mountains of North America, The Range of Glaciers: Exploration and Survey of the North Cascades, and a personal narrative, Challenge of the North Cascades.
