Climbing the mountain is one thing. Getting from the car to the mountain is another. Wilderness travel is the art of getting there—across streams, around brush, along trails, and over snow.
When climbers leave the trailhead deep in a valley of Washington State's Cascade range or head inland from the beach of a British Columbia fiord, tough wilderness travel may lie ahead. The techniques of muddling through brush are not as glamorous as fifth-class rock climbing, but many a peak has been lost in thickets of slide alder. The biggest barriers on the way to a mountaintop often appear below snow line. Learn the skills of wilderness travel and you open the gateway to the summit.
