- Hikers, scramblers, serious climbers and Northwest rescue organizations, alike, have relied on Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guides for decades to lead them through this wild mountain range
- In addition to their comprehensiveness, the books provide a rare combination of aerial photos with route overlays, three-dimensional illustrated maps, and climbing topos
- The section of the North Cascades covered in this volume is roughly a pie-shaped area in the northern section of the range, stretching from the Lake Chelan area up into Canada and west to Bellingham
- Except for glaciers and some year-round snow fields, it's mostly dry, lonesome, open country, with beautiful granite spires jutting to the sky.
