Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

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.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic overview of climbing the Cascade Volcanoes. Aerial photographs of the mountains supplement the schematic route descriptions. Can be used alone to climb the routes, especially the popular ones, however a specific guidebook would be better for some of the lesser-known peaks as the route descriptions for those peaks are somewhat vague. Unfortunately for route book publishers, the internet now has robust resources for current route descriptions and conditions. That said, there's usually no wifi at basecamp and this book doesn't require batteries! A great inspirational book

The route descriptions in this book are not very in-depth and the route illustrations that aren't photos are sort of useless. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Very accurate book about the Northern Cascade Range. This book will tell you all the main routes like a dummies guide would. If you want the real deal for climbing the cascades, then spend the money on Oregon High, for the really obscure routes that nobody has ever heard of. For 10 bucks, the Falcon Guides are bar none, "the one".
