The long-awaited revision of Fred Beckey's comprehensive and indispensable climbing guide is here at last. The first volume in the classic Cascade Alpine Guide series, Columbia River to Stevens Pass features expert information on more than 300 climbing and high routes, including Mount Rainier. Here you'll find geographical, historical, and geological overviews of the majestic North Cascades region, plus important tips on safety and backcountry usage and enough technical and grade information to make clear exactly what type of route you are embarking upon. The new, third edition is thoroughly revised and updated with new maps and photos, plus all the most recent resource materials. Without a doubt, this exhaustive resource should be a staple in every serious mountaineer's collection.

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 colorful 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.

Review:

Nothing matches CAG's comprehensiveness. (Seattle Weekly)

[Beckey's] encyclopedic, three-volume guidebook, Cascade Alpine Guide, is mandatory reading for anyone aspiring to [these] summits." (Backpacker)

Climbers and scramblers should put this one on their Christmas list. It's the bible to Washington's south and central Cascades. (Cascadian Newsletter)

These books are mind-boggling in their thoroughness and remarkable in their historical. geological, and geographical detail. Called by some the climber's bible, they are a must for any avid peak-bagger in the state. (Wenatchee World)

Known simply as Beckey's bible, no list of Northwest outdoor books would be complete without Beckey's monumental guide to climb in Washington's Cascades. What's extraordinary is that most of the information was gleaned firsthand. (Washington Trails)
