The High Sierra: Peaks, Passes, and Trails
The diverse terrain and unspoiled wilderness of the High Sierra makes it one of the best places in the world for "the practice of mountains" - advanced hiking, cross- country rambling, peak bagging, rock and ice climbing, and ski touring. The most comprehensive resource on this explorer's paradise, The High Sierra details all the major and minor routes to the area and covers approach roads, trails, and cross-country and climbing routes. Sections called "Wrinkles" provide alternative and lesser- known linkage routes between and within regions.
