A must for any climber's library

This is a great book for anyone who climbs in the Northwest or is interested in Northwest climbing history. The book gives a unique view into Kearney's life long love affair with the high, wild, and often remote summits. Kearney has been climbing, seemingly non-stop, since the early seventies and his passion for the sport leaps off the pages. In addition to the "normal" pictures and route descriptions(excellent), Kearney includes information regarding the history of the route and the individuals involved.(these are often fascinating stories - in a number of cases the first accents were done by the author) The historical overview is followed by an account of the accent that involved the author.(Kearney has climbed every route - 4 in British Columbia, 43 in Washington, 2 in Oregon and 2 in Idaho) This is a great addition to any climber's library. You should buy this book even if you own the other guides to the region.
