Northwest Mountaineering Journal, 2006
The mission of the Northwest Mountaineering Journal is to be an edited, permanent, annual record of mountaineering in the Pacific Northwest. The journal documents the events, people, history and spirit of climbing and other mountain sports in this region. The journal is published by volunteers from the mountaineering community in collaboration with The Mountaineers. The 2006 issue of the journal is now available. See:
This issue has feature articles about high alpine traverses, big wall climbing, mountain rescue, influential mountaineers, and more. It includes reports of new climbing routes, first winter ascents, and first ski descents from April 1, 2005 through March 31, 2006. It also contains highlights from Mount Rainier and North Cascade National Parks.
I'd like to thank everyone who contributed stories, photos, and information for this issue, both for your contributions and for your patience as we assembled this issue over the past several months. I'd also like to thank the great team of volunteers who edited the journal and the folks at CascadeClimbers.com and the The Mountaineers who provided invaluable support.
We hope you enjoy this issue and will begin looking forward to the next one.
The 2006 Northwest Mountaineering Journal Team
