California is home to some of the nation's most scenic and majestic mountains, a diverse and varied playground for those who want to experience the breadth of basic mountain climbing. Volcanic peaks, rocky slopes, sheer cliffs, granite cornices, easy scrambles, challenging ascents, open meadows, and incredible views are just some of the highlights awaiting nontechnical climbers in the Golden State.

From easy romps up San Jacinto Peak and multiday trips to Banner Peak to rocky climbs up Mount Williamson and more advanced mountaineering at Cathedral Peak, Climbing California's Mountains provides the information needed to ascend sixty-nine of the state's most outstanding summits.

Inside you'll find: an introduction to each peak - geology, history, scenic highlights, and more; summit details, including information about elevation, route ratings, and trip distance; detailed approach maps; permit information, the best climbing season, and details on other mountains in the area.
