* 100 rock, alpine, and ice routes rated by appeal
* New entry in the Selected Climbs series from The Mountaineers Books
* Routes selected and presented by professional guides based in the Northeast
In the past, climbers have been forced to buy many guidebooks to specific regions in the Northeast and sift through them on their own, hoping to spot the gems. But now two mountain guides who have climbed extensively in the Northeast region share their A-list picks with us. There's not a route in this book that won't thrill you by the quality of the climb, the aesthetic experience, and its historical significance.

New York-Shawangunks, Catskills, Adirondacks; Connecticut-Ragged Mountain; Vermont-Smuggler's Notch, Lake Willoughby; New Hampshire-Franconia Notch, Cathedral Ledge, Mount Washington, Frankenstein Cliff, Whitehorse Ledge, Mount Webster, Mount Willard, and White's Ledge; Maine- Acadia National Park and Mount Katahdin.
