A new edition of the only guide to detail all the known routes on 570 peaks in the Sierras, thoroughly updated, with 60+ pages of new material covering 80 new routes, and new photos throughout.
The diverse terrain and unspoiled wilderness of the High Sierra makes it one of the best places in the world for "the practice of mountains" - advanced hiking, cross-country rambling, peak bagging, rock and ice climbing, and ski touring. Here it is possible to begin a hike in the desert of the eastern Sierra, scale rock and ice to a mountain top, and end in the lush redwood groves of the western slopes.
The most comprehensive resource on this explorer's paradise, The High Sierra details all the major and minor routes to the area and covers approach roads, trails, and cross-country and climbing routes. Sections called "Wrinkles" provide alternative and lesser-known linkage routes between and within regions.
