Karl Kelley has likely spent more time in Indian Creek than any other climber. He can be spotted at crags—obscure and popular—checking route beta, chatting with climbers, picking up trash, offering advice. He has climbed on 1,300 of the over 2000 routes contained within this guide (nearly double the route count of the previous book). To top it off, Karl is donating 100% of his royalties to the Access Fund and has convinced Sharp End, Pagan Mountaineering, and Gearheads to offer $1 for each book sold.

    Another great book put out by Sharp end publishing. This is a creak dreamers book. Cherish the old times, and go get on some of the new routes in this gem.

    Overall a well done quidebook, but wish there was a more detailed gear list for the individual climbs. The Bloom guidebook is (usually) very good at this, and it is helpful to know if you need something crazy like ten #1 camalots!
