Detailed Product Description
Alaska, 2012, 1st edition. 187 pp, color photos. New paperback.

This is both a guidebook for climbing the highpoints of the seven peaks of Central America, and the adventure story of the author's ascents of these uncommonly visited peaks.
 
In 2009, the author successfully climbed the 'Seven Summits' of Central America', reaching the summit of the highest peak in each country. These climbs are part of a larger goal of being the first to climb the highest peaks/points in every one of the 23 countries of the Americas (North America, Central America, and South America).
 
High Points: A Climber's Guide to Central America provides quick and easy access to everything one needs to know to climb the highest peak in each of the seven countries in Central America, without having to buy a guidebook for each country. High Points: A Climber's Guide to Central America includes the essential information for climbing the standard (and typically easiest) route on each country high point: Doyle's Delight - 3,853' (Belize), Mogotón - 6,909' (Nicaragua), Volcán Tajumulco - 13,845' (Guatemala), Volcán Barú - 11,401' (Panama), Cerro el Pital - 8,957' (El Salvador), Cerro Las Minas - 9,347' (Honduras), Chirripó - 12,530' (Costa Rica). [For those of you asking what about Mexico, Mexico is in North America.]
 
Reaching these high points is a scenic day hike in some cases that does not require much more than a day of hiking, a sack lunch and some comfortable walking shoes. However, in other cases, the climb requires a level of commitment and determination that rivals many peaks around the world that are much higher in elevation. In addition, given the obscurity of some of these country high points (Doyle's Delight in Belize, and Mogotón in Nicaragua for example), there are route descriptions in this guidebook that can't be found in any other books or websites on or off the market. The information is primarily from the author's first hand experience of climbing each of the mountains/routes described, and secondarily from hundreds of hours of pre-climb research conducted by the author in preparation for each climb.
