Winner of the Canadian Rockies Award at the 2005 Banff Mountain Book Festival, this comprehensive climberís guide and history of the 54 11,000-foot peaks in the Canadian Rockies celebrates in words and images these breathtaking summits and the wilderness settings over which they tower. This book uniquely captures and distills the lively and frequently forgotten accounts of the pioneering climbers and their various routes. Each entry provides a vivid description of the peak, an extensive history of the early ascents of it and a detailed description of moderate to intermediate routes, including access and approach information. Now extensively updated, the text is liberally illustrated with route and climbing photos, both contemporary and historical, and includes detailed area maps.
