About the Author

For over a decade, Joe Josephson has been one of the most influential ice climbers in the world. Although his contributions range as widely as safety research for ice anchors, consulting with gear companies, establishing new routes, and spectacular photography, perhaps his longest lasting accomplishment has been his prolific writing about the sport and specifically his guidebooks to the Canadian Rockies and the Greater Yellowstone Region. These books have established new levels of accuracy, detail, and inspiration that have raised the bar for climbing guide standards.

Format: Paperback
This guide book is well written, thought out, and has some reall really nice photos. All routes are photographed, making finding them alot easier. They could almost slap a hard cover on it and sell it as a coffe table book.

By Scott Hurst on February 1, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic guide to all that is ice in Montana and Wyoming. The pictures provide a great asset to finding routes and ice flows off the beaten path. The wide variety of ice make the book a must for anyone who wishes to climb from beginner to advanced, there is something for everyone.

The only downside is to those who are orienting themselves to an area for the first time. Some of the routes are hard to locate if you are not familiar with the climbing areas and the way they are oriented. The maps at the beginning help some with this, but the uninitiated will find it a little bit hard to find some routes their first time out.

Format: Paperback
It's obvious that the author has perused plenty of climbing books and learned from the successes and failures of others. This is a gorgeous book, with concise route descriptions that are informative without wrecking the adventure of the climbs themselves. The photos are clear and useful and the book is well-organized. I have climbed a few of the longer routes in Cody as well as several in Montana and have yet to find any inaccuracies. 99% of the book is about routes - the obligatory stuff about local ethics and history is interesting but brief, unlike some guidebooks that fill half their pages with Leave No Trace advice.

Highly recommended for all ice climbers interested in seeing the Yellowstone ecosystem from high on an ice climb!
