Information

The best-selling climber's guide to Mount Rainier gets a thorough update:

  • 40 principal routes and their variations, with aerial photos and route overlays.

  • All-new beta on 9 ski and snowboard routes.

Many of the most accomplished U.S. alpinists have learned their skills on Mount Rainier. And many of the rest of us dream of one day standing on its majestic summit. Whether you're one of these dreamers or an aspiring pro, you need this book, written by Mike Gauthier, the park's former Lead Climbing Ranger.

This new 3rd edition is a major upgrade of the bestselling guidebook, which remains a standard for other climbing guides. New features include an expanded section on glaciers, including how to understand and surmount them, as well as new information on search-and-rescue and additional historical details throughout. Gauthier has also added beta on all major ski routes, as this sport has become a favorite on the mountain.

Mount Rainier reigns as the single resource, packed with everything you need to climb the mountain, from your first time to your fifth: tips on selecting a guide service; nearby training sites to help prepare you; detailed beta on the 40 principle climbing routes; overviews of park flora and fauna; capsule histories of ascents and accidents; overviews of the major park regions; bonus routes to several other peaks inside Mount Rainier National Park; and much more.
