Mount Shasta, 4th edition
See details
Mount Shasta, 4th edition
Andy Selters and Michael Zanger

Mt. Shasta is California’s premier, stand-alone, 14,000-foot mountain—with the largest and longest glaciers in the state. Along with Washington’s Mt. Rainier, Mt. Shasta is one of the two most prominent large mountains in the contiguous United States. Shasta is sought after by so many climbers and skiers nationwide because it offers such a wide variety of routes, especially moderate ones for the aspiring mountaineer and backcountry skier.

The fully updated fourth edition of Mt. Shasta, by Andy Selters and Michael Zanger, is the most comprehensive and detailed guide and overview to a large, varied, historic, and coveted mountain for climbing and skiing. The guide offers extensive detail on dozens of trips both on the mountain and in its surroundings, including weather, climbing and skiing conditions, amenities, and history. A special extra is a guide to Shasta’s superb circumnavigation at timberline, pioneered by John Muir, that is often referred to as one of the best off-trail hikes in the Northwest. The book also comes with a topographic map showing all mountain routes and variations.

Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed
Simon Carter

Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed offers something for everyone that has any affiliation with rock climbing. Photographer Simon Carter completely suspends us in 21 of Australia’s climbing scenes. From the three-dimensional prismatic rock jungle of Coolum cave; to the eucalypt-scented crags of the Blue Mountains; the shady gullies of Arapiles with hexes clanging and belay calls echoing. Feel the gyroscopic giddiness of the Totem Pole; the parched desert wind tickling the ancient rock at Moonarie; and tremor under the thunderous force of the Southern Ocean pounding the granite walls of West Cape Howe.

Accompanying the mesmerizing photography are area introductions and personal stories written by no fewer than 80 climbers. Thread by thread, the climbers’ stories weave a magical sentiment throughout the book. Kim Carrigan, John Fantini, Dave Jones, Kevin Lindorff, Neil Monteith, Chris Webb Parsons, and Mike Law are only some of the 80 talented climbing authors found in the book.

The images taken by Simon Carter combined with the stories written by the most significant contributors to the history and culture of Australian climbing make Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed a textural masterpiece that will awaken all of your senses; an unprecedented exposé of Australian climbing.

Traditional Lead Climbing, 2ed
Heidi Pestefield

Traditional Lead Climbing is the first and only guidebook intended to teach rock climbers how to lead with gear. Unlike other types of climbing such as sport and direct-aid climbing, “trad” climbing relies on placing your own gear as you climb from the ground. It’s also one of the more dangerous climbing activities, where expert guidance is a must.

This invaluable guide gives step-by-step descriptions of equipment, rope management, and techniques. Dozens of close-up photos and fun yet informative drawings show situations climbers might encounter and how to deal with them. In addition to covering the basics, the book showcases the experience and wisdom of a number of world-class climbers in self-revealing sidebars.

The second edition includes a new chapter on transitioning from the climbing gym to the great outdoors, and additional sketches.

Aimed at the intermediate rock climber who has a desire to lead with gear.

Author Heidi Pesterfield is an expert instructor who has climbed all over the world.
