The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies – 2nd Edition by Bill Corbett Release Date: 01/09/2016 ISBN 9781771601320 7.5 x 10 inches 304 pages paperback $35.00 (CAD)
An award winner at the Banff Mountain Book Festival, this comprehensive, full-colour climber’s guide and history celebrates in words and images these breathtaking summits and the lively, often forgotten accounts of the pioneering climbers and their original routes.
This new edition of The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies thoroughly updates route and access information, particularly taking into account the warming trends and glacier retreat that are significantly reshaping the landscape through which mountaineers travel. For those seeking fresh challenges or high peaks to bag, this revision introduces four more mountains on the threshold of 11,000 feet, bringing the potential total to 58 that reach the magic mark.
Each entry provides a vivid description of the peak, an extensive history of early and subsequent ascents (and ski descents) and a detailed description of moderate to intermediate routes, including access and approach information. The text is liberally illustrated in full colour and features dozens of route and climbing photos and detailed area maps.
It's bigger, beefier and loaded with brilliant photos, plus four more peaks, bringing the number of Rockies' 11,000ers to 58. In addition to its terrific larger size, the new edition of this must-have guidebook provides delightful reading for the dedicated peak-baggers and armchair mountaineers alike.—Lynn Martel, ACC Gazette
