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. So you can feel confident to rely on Mountaineers Books Cascade Alpine Guide, Vol. 3: Rainy Pass to Fraser River: Climbing & High Routes, 3rd Edition's comprehensiveness to 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.

REVIEWED BY: GEOFF TAYLOR 2013-02-14
"I have all 3 volumes. If you love hiking, scrambling and climbing in the cascades then this is a must have. It seems like it lists routes to the top of almost every peak. It's pretty amazing. Some of the route maps and descriptions are a little outdated. But won't be a problem if you're able to do some route finding of your own. And as informative as these books are, it is always important to bring a seprate topo map and compass to help navigate. On a side note- I love that the pages have rounded corners. No more bent page edges if you carry it in your pack!"
