This book is intended as a guide to California’s fourteeners for someone comfortable on moderate, established routes like Whitney’s trail and the easier Colorado fourteeners. The ideal reader should be reasonably fit and eager to explore, but may have less experience and confidence route-finding off trail and on steeper terrain. This book presents the most common routes on California’s fourteeners, and how to climb them in order of progressive difficulty, from hikes on well-maintained trails to steep, exposed scrambling.
