High Alaska is a unique blend of mountaineering history and practical guidebook. With extensive coverage of the routes of Denali, Mount Foraker, and Mount Hunter, this comprehensive volume also includes historic, scenic, and route photographs -- the latter by the esteemed mountain photographer Bradford Washburn.

For each route, author Jonathon Waterman details the approach, mileage, total time to allow for the climb and descent, climbing miles, vertical gain of the route, the Alaska Grade, difficulties, and dangers. His engagingly written stories of first ascents and other historical attempts round out this guide making it not only useful for climbers, but great armchair reading as well.
