Climbing Washington's Mountains (Falcon Guides Rock Climbing)
Synopses & Reviews
Washington is home to some of the nation's most inspiring and rugged mountains. Rocky summits, glaciers, high mountain lakes, deep glacier-carved valleys, and long, exposed ridges are just some of the rewards awaiting hikers and climbers in the Cascades and Olympic Mountains.From moderate walk-ups and alpine scrambles in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and Olympic Mountains, to technical routes in the North Cascades, and including all of the state's 9,000-footers and high volcanoes, Climbing Washington's Mountains provides the information needed to climb 100 of the state's outstanding summits. Look inside for detailed descriptions of each peak and recommended routes, including: an introduction to each peak - geology, history, scenic highlights, and more; summit details, including elevation and elevation gain, route names and ratings, and trip distance and duration; detailed approach maps and illustrated descriptions of routes; route variations, alternate summit routes, and information on other mountains in the area. (6 x 9, 416 pages, b&w photos, maps)
