For years, climbers have consulted Selected Climbs in the Cascades for the region's finest, most enjoyable, most aesthetic climbs. This follow-up volume, with all-new routes, details a similar mix of walk-ups, snow climbs, scrambles, wilderness alpine routes, hard rock climbs, ice climbs, and strenuous mixed climbs, with one major addition: sport and crag climbs. There are routes here for climbers of all skill levels, making this an ideal guide for everyone from beginners looking for the easiest routes up the gentler Cascade peaks to advanced rock climbers looking for a fresh, new challenge.

Like the first volume, Volume II includes detailed approach and route descriptions, permit requirements, topo maps, and photos for each climb, plus information on first ascents, equipment, areas of caution, and special considerations for climbing in the Cascades.

Whitehorse Mountain (PDF):
Whitehorse Mountain is a mountain that should be timed carefully for early season, as soon as avalanche danger abates but while the lower section is still covered by snowpack. More than most routes, timing is critical here for the best experience. 1 Route, 3 Pages.

Vesper Peak (PDF):
Vesper is one of the best rock climbs in the Mountain Loop Highway area. The rock is solid on this very clean climb, and the small glacier adds to the alpine character of the climb. 1 Route, 4 Pages.

Ingalls Peak (PDF):
The exposure on the east ridge of the North Peak makes this climb more dramatic than difficult, although there is a short but tricky 5.7 step to finish the climb. There are a few loose sections, but the appeal of the route and the setting surmount those shortcomings. 1 Route, 4 Pages.
