This comprehensive, lightweight(Weighs less than one ounce) climbing guide is designed to be carried with you on your summit attempts. The Stanley Maps' Mt. Rainier Climbing Guide gives a complete view of two of Mt. Rainier's best known climbing routes. Route descriptions are accurate and concise. There is no more piecing together USGS East and West Quadrangles. Each route is clearly shown with 40-foot contours (1:24,000 scale) on a single waterproof and nearly-indestructible sheet that you can fold down and carry in your pocket. The guide is coupled with a total of eight strategic, color aerial photographs to give you a quick and clear understanding of your position. GPS grids are included, so that you can easily set way points. An equipment and clothing checklist helps you to assemble the right gear. The section titled "Climbing Essentials and Tips" provides important information on training, emergencies, first aid, dehydration, acute mountain sickness (altitude), sun exposure, weather, avalanche awareness, no trace climbing, and more.
If you are planning a summit attempt, the new conventional wisdom is "Don't leave home without one." Seattle Mountain Rescue keeps a set of the guides in their rescue truck. The high quality of the guides makes them a great, long-lasting memento of previous adventures on the Mountain.
