This new, 3rd edition is a major upgrade of the bestselling guidebook, which remains a standard for other climbing guides. New features include an expanded section on glaciers, including how to understand and traverse them, as well as new information on search-and-rescue and additional historical details. Gauthier has also added beta on all major ski routes, as this sport has become a favorite on the mountain.

Mount Rainier reigns as the single resource, packed with everything you need to climb the mountain, from your first time to your fifth: tips on selecting a guide service; nearby training sites to help prepare you; detailed beta on the 40 principle climbing routes; overviews of park flora and fauna; capsule histories of ascents and accidents; overviews of the major park regions; bonus routes to several other peaks inside Mount Rainier National Park; and much more.
