These images are taken from my 1973 edition of Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide. I thought it might be interesting for people to see what the routes were like before the mountain blew its top. Sorry for the quality; the book isn't in great shape. If anyone wants the route descriptions Beckey gives, PM me and I'll send them to you-I'm not including them here because a bunch of text doesn't look good in an image gallery.
