If you’ve done any amount of hiking or climbing in the Sierras, you’ve probably bought, borrowed or stole a copy of the guidebook "The High Sierra: Peaks, Passes, and Trails" by
R.J. Secor. That “bible of the Sierras” has guided untold numbers to discover and explore the wonderful peaks and hidden gems of the high Sierra range.

At the Sierra Peaks Section banquet in January, R.J. received the national Sierra Club's Francis Farquhar Mountaineering Award which honors an individual’s contribution to the sport of mountaineering and enhancement of the Sierra Club's prestige in that field.

R.J. is a longtime member of the Sierra Club and the Sierra Peaks Section. He is one of only four people to complete the SPS list two times and one of only two who has achieved a third Master Emblem. R.J. is a lifelong mountaineer, adventurer and author. Besides The High Sierra, he has authored guidebooks on Denali, Aconcagua and Mexican volcanoes.

Congratulations. I love your book, use it all the time. I hope someday I will have bagged as many peaks as you.
