This is not a guidebook. Rather, it is a narrative history by the people who risked life and limb to establish these long, difficult and sometimes scary climbs.
This hard-cover coffee-table book showcases photographs taken from the cockpit of John Scurlock’s home-built airplane, a Van’s Aircraft RV-6. In 2002, John embarked on a nine-year quest to fly to and photograph every corner of the North Cascade Range in winter. The images he captured provide a breathtaking vision of one of America’s most magnificent mountain ranges in its most beautiful, dramatic, and savage season.

Mental fitness training is simply improving your ability to keep attention in the moment.
