California's 14,000-foot peaks are altogether different from those in Colorado or Washington. In most cases they are steep, sheer-walled spires found in remote, pristine wilderness areas.
Porcella and Burns have spent years climbing many of the listed routes and have extensively researched all others to create the only route guide that includes several options for each fourteener. Each mountain description includes access, history, and details such as difficulty ratings and gear recommendations. Specific route descriptions, ranging from the easiest to highly technical, are illustrated with photos with route overlays. An informative introduction includes permit information, search and rescue resources, and a discussion of wilderness ethics.
