  1. Book is excellent! Describes the route you need to take to get to the summits. Pictures help you stay on the correct route. Warns you about any hazards you need to know about. It also opened the door to summits where I could not figure out how to get there safely. Will be buying other volumes.

    The book moves us forward from Gordon Edward’s book.

  2. I currently own Volumes 1&3 of the Climb Glacier series. I plan to purchase vol. 2 soon because I would like to climb Sinopah and Rising Wolf this coming summer.
    I’m a forester by profession so I constantly use multiple resources (aerial imagery, maps, land descriptions, ect.) before going most places outdoors. New to climbing in glacier last year; I’ve found these books to have those multiple resources all in one. Each summit route has maps, elevation charts, gps coordinates, and most importantly multiple photos of the route including the crux(s). I value the detailed descriptions, difficulty ratings, and photos because my love/hate relationship with heights will not allow me to be found on some routes with too much exposure.
    Possibly the only way to get a more detailed description of the route would be to hike/climb it, but that’s the idea isn’t it?
