Cascade Alpine Guide Vol. 3 Edition 3 by Fred Beckey

We know this isn’t exactly fresh meat here but we were asked to do a review of the new edition of Fred Beckey’s Cascade Alpine Guide Vol. 3 more commonly referenced to as the “Red Beckey Guide”. Released in the Fall of 2008 this edition was rumors to be the last update of CAGs by Fred. It goes without saying that the Beckey Guides are the Bible to the Cascades, and while there is the occasional nebulous approach information there isn’t anything that comes close to the pure volume of information on climbing routes in the Cascades.
