The Cascade volcanoes dominate the landscape in the Pacific Northwest. For years adventuresome locals have explored the glaciated flanks of these impressive giants, and climbers around the globe are drawn to the region with sights set on snow-capped summits. For many, climbing one volcano is the achievement of a lifetime; for others, the pursuit of these mountains becomes a lifelong obsession. Described in this book are routes up eighteen of these majestic peaks, from British Columbia south through Washington and Oregon to California.
