fantastic...
particulary the photos with topo lines drawn in...wish it was a ring binder book as all beta books should be, but of course I just tear out the pages....serves as a much better resourse for peaks over 11,000' than Selected Alpine Climbs of the Canadian Rockies.

Excellent reference book
Best book on the 11,000 foot mountains in the Canadian Rockies. The author was the third person to complete all 54 peaks. He includes lots of well researched material and pictures from his own experience and from others who have completed all the peaks.
