The Bugaboos : An Alpine History by J. F. Gardin
Not your typical coffee table book. This large format history book has excellent stories of early exploration, first ascents, first winter ascents, and amazing pictures.
Many climbers know some details about the first ascent of Bugaboo spire, but there have been many equally impressive first ascents in the range. Have you ever wondered what techniques were used for the first ascent of the North Howser Tower, East Face of Snowpatch Spire, or the Beckey-Chouinard on the South Howser Tower? This book covers those climbs and more. It is hard to put down!
