This book provides recommendations for, descriptions of, and directions to some of the best scrambles in the High Sierra. Included are the best of the classic California 14ers and scrambles to awesome and little-known summits. From the highest point in the continental United States and the ultra-hardcore Badwater to Telescope Peak (11,000+ feet of elevation gain) to three bonus hikes on the island of Kauai, Hiking the High Sierra puts them all within reach. The guide also contains six of the finest hikes around Yosemite, including the legendary Half Dome and the little-known ascent of El Capitan's Southeast Gully. Author Branch Whitney has hiked and climbed more than 3,000 miles, led 2,000 hikers to summits all over the Southwest, and discovered some of the wildest scrambling routes in the country. Whitney provides detailed hike descriptions and extensive colour photographs of key landmarks; valuable information on the distance, difficulty, elevation gain, class rating, and best season for each hike; and, practical data on permits, lodging and camping, and GPS waypoints. Finally, one book gives you everything you need to get the most out of the best hikes in the amazing High Sierra.
