Classic Cascade Climbs features more than 100 climbing routes across 70-plus peaks--from renowned alpine routes to challenging trad climbs, as well as a handful of sport, ice, and crag options.

Peak and prominence elevations and type of rock

Grade, approach, route, descent descriptions

Detailed photo-based route overlays and topo maps

Pitch-by-pitch details, estimated time, recommended equipment

Required permits and other special considerations

Selected history including first ascents

Authoritative and inspirational, this seminal guide also features stunning mountain photography by famed photographer John Scurlock and others.
