good to have a book
this is getting a 3 star review because of the lack of homework on the routes. some of the starts suggested in this book dont match the logical starts. the grades and beta do not other publicly availible ratings and star grades. love matters getting 1 star is laughable probably one of my favorite climbs in the state of Colorado at the grade. there are many other grades I would find suspect. overall its nice to have a book for these areas. I think this list is extremely incomplete the swissco area does not even have routes or suggested grades. they should have waited and put out a more complete book in my opinion.
