The Stories: Author Mark Kroese gets 50 of the most accomplished climbers of this generation to reveal their all-time favorite climbing routes. Renowned climber Tony Yaniro reveals his personal challenges and controversies as he ascents Scirocco, east face of the Sorcerer at the Needles in California. More inside scoop from Roxanna Brock, Mark Twight, Jared Ogden and other great climbers proves a riveting read.
The Climbers: Each story includes a climber profile, garnered from hours of fascinating, thought-provoking, and often downright fun interviews. The climbers share personal anecdotes and offer their views on everything from ethics to style to training techniques. These well-crafted profiles give the reader a real sense of today's leading climbers.
The Routes: From Newfoundland to Yosemite, Mexico to British Columbia, the favorite routes offers excellent climbing, stunning views, wild exposure, or spectacular summits. Each one includes a summary, description of the approach, the route itself, and the descent, along with first-ascent information, ratings, time required, recommended equipment, best season, special considerations, and references.

Review:
A visually dramatic book ... superlative photos of climbers doing their outrageously nimble, gravity-defying stuff ... there are truly top-flight mountaineering tales, showcasing impressive human displays of physical strength and mental resolve, and then demonstrating that Mother Nature still has the final say. (Barbara McMichael, The Olympian and The Bremerton Sun)

I could not put it down. Climbers are hailing this ... as a new classic, but it's the sort of gazetteer that transcends genre ... Even if you've climbed no higher than a ladder, Fifty Favorite Climbs will surely take your breath away. (Travel+Life)

[A] handsomely photographed, well-presented volume of notable North American mountaineering routes. (Seattle Weekly)

Probably one of the most spectacular climbing books we've seen in a long time ... This is far more than a guide to climbing in North America; it is a revealing look at the history of contemporary climbing and the people who continue to shape it. (Sweat magazine)

Will serve as inspiration for trip planning dreams. (Great Falls (MT) Tribune)

This splendidly done, full-color treat-for-the-eyes blends personality and place, showcasing 50 accomplished climbers and their favorite climbs. (Salem Statesman-Journal)

It's the perfect book for someone with a serious climbing habit... Kroese's artful writing maintains an even balance between the personalities and the climbing... Fifty Favorite Climbs has found a place of honor on my nightstand. (Rock & Ice)

Beautiful ... Adorned with impressive, full-page photography, interesting personality vignettes and detailed descriptions of a classic North American route chosen by each climber... A worthwhile guide for trip-planning or just indulging in grand dreams. (Seattle Times)

This book is as beautiful to look at as it is inspiring to read. (About.com)
