Ways to the Sky charts the evolution of alpine climbing in the United States, Canada and Mexico, from the evidence of ancient native ascents to the latest cutting-edge climbs. Andy Selters highlights key personalities–from exploratory climbers like John Muir and Lt. August Kautz to technical maestros such as Mark Twight and Marko Prezelj– on the most demanding mountain routes. He then points readers to the mountains where they can experience firsthand many of these historically significant routes.
Andy Selters, a longtime mountaineer, mountain guide, photographer, and cartographer, has climbed extensively in North and South America and has established new routes in Pakistan and Nepal. He is the author of The Mount Shasta Book and Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue.
