Classic Cascade Climbs features more than 100 climbing routes across 70-plus peaks—from renowned alpine routes to challenging trad climbs, as well as a handful of sport, ice, and crag options. To determine if it was a “classic” each route was judged on the following criteria: overall quality, popularity, accessibility, style, and historical importance. Climbing beta includes:

  • Peak and prominence elevations and type of rock
  • Grade, approach, route, descent descriptions
  • Detailed photo-based route overlays and topo maps
  • Pitch-by-pitch details, estimated time, recommended equipment
  • Required permits and other special considerations
  • Selected history including first ascents
  • Publisher: The Mountaineers Books

Authoritative and inspirational, this seminal guide also features stunning mountain photography by famed photographer John Scurlock and others.
