Format: Paperback
As the previous reviewer notes, the 1995 edition is most useful. Unless you buy used from Amazon, you WILL get the 1995 edition. It contains many crucial updates and additions.
Route descriptions are surprisingly detailed for a guidebook. Most important peaks have multiple routes described. Seeing as how there is effectively zero route information on the internet, you're stuck with it. Luckily, the book is very good!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Thomas J. Forwood on September 13, 2001
Format: Paperback
This guide covers most of the peaks in the park. Many of the mountains not covered here are at least mentioned and Edwards proclaims the apparent ease of these climbs. My experience agrees with this surmission. I have been on the mountains of the park with, and without the guide. When the guide was in possession, the climb was greatly simplified. Well done and a must for those interested in climbing mountains in Glacier National Park!

Format: Paperback
Be sure you get the 1995 revised edition of this book. I received the original 1984 edition, and it is heavy on text and light on route maps and photos. Many of the peaks and routes have no supporting photos. I suspect the 1995 revision has corrected this. Climbing guidebooks need to be visual.

I worked in Glacier for 3 summers, and every one of us hikers has a copy of this book. It got me up many, many summits all around the park. Make sure you hit up the Many Glacier area!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Steven McMacken on December 2, 2013
Format: Paperback
I was fortunate enough to have climbed with J. Gordon Edwards when I worked at Glacier Park back in the sixties. He took me up the east face of Wilbur, as well as the east face of Clemens and the north face of Reynolds — a mountain I loved so much I ended up climbing it seven times. He was delightful and a great teacher. His descriptions of the climbs in the book are accurate and rich in detail. This is a must-read for anyone thinking of attempting the peaks of Glacier National Park.

By Enjoying life... on February 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
I've had this book for more than ten years and find it more valuable every time I plan a trip to Glacier. I'm not a climber but really enjoy off trail hiking. Edward's route descriptions between peaks and access routes are simply fantastic compared to anything else available. The park has changed a lot but every route I've tried from the book is actually there - with a little route finding - and always an adveture. My copy is highlighted, worn, and full of post-its.
If you enjoy Glacier and off trail exploring buy this book. Its not a trail guide but it has really enhanced my enjoyment of the park.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you’re expecting a topo / list of graded sport climbs, this isn't it. This is “climbing” in a general sense, and talks about the peaks of Glacier, as well as geology and local facts. Get it as a general guide to hiking, but not as a topo.

This is a classic old climbing guide, fine for what it does, which is not giving much detail. Many prominent summits are not covered at all. This pales in comparison with the Passmore climbing guide series.
