The winner of the Canadian Rockies Award at the 2005 Banff Mountain Book Festival. The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies is a comprehensive guide and history book on the 54 11,000-foot peaks of the area. (4 new peaks have been added in this edition, bringing the total to 58 summits.) This new edition has been thoroughly updated, from routes to access information. Moreover, it now takes into consideration the receding glaciers, which are reshaping the way mountaineers travel. This book is still full of stories and photos about the stunning peaks. It also provides eloquent descriptions of the mountains. It contains details of the early and consequent ascents (and ski descents) as well as precise information about moderate and intermediate routes, access and approaches. Finally, detailed area maps and full-colour pictures are also included in this guidebook.
