todd, a real climber would also know the developer, fa, and ffa of every route..otherwise, it is a game of no consequence.

Two new books for 150 new routes... Wow, is that worth $50?

I will not be buying this round of guidebooks... Maybe I will wait a year and buy the next edition... :roll:

I think this is a great deal and the books look very good. I just started climbing at the RED last summer so I will getting one for this year's climbing. Purchasing one from my gym when they get them in. Great work everyone.

I'm up for the challenge... I think I'd do pretty well with that for iconic routes, a bit more challenging for the routes that aren't so much in the spotlight... but again, I'm up for it! Next time you run into me... you'll have to quiz me and see if I'm doing okay...

Will you tutor me if I need help?

Mine came two days ago. It looks nice and all but I though I ordered my name embossed in gold on each page as well as the cover and this was not done. Also, the pages are kinda sticking together and I do not wish to guess why - I suspect Horatio had something to do with this. All in all, great guide book though! :)

Just got mine...with the addition of new routes, pictures, and updated information, I would say this was well worth it. Here's another vote for this beautiful, accurate guide; it will be keeping me company until my extended fall stay. Thanks Ray!
