We describe a corpus of historic mountaineering accounts and ongoing work on geocoding toponyms and route descriptions in These accounts. Mountaineering accounts contain a wealth of geographic information but its extraction for purposes of geographic Information retrieval poses specific challenges, in particular the distinction between toponyms pertinent to route descriptions and those mentioned in descriptions of panoramas. We describe some preliminary considerations for natural language cues to distinguish between these two types of occurrences.
