• Alaska: A Climbing Guide (Mountaineers $24.95) by Mike Wood and Colby Coombs is a noteworthy guidebook simply because it’s the first comprehensive guide to 80 routes in eight great ranges in Alaska. As Brian Okonek notes in his foreword, this book should not be used as a “checklist” but as a “Springboard for your imagination.”
