This book is beautifully produced and has excellent content. Definitely a must-have for the area. But it leaves the reader to do a little too much leg-work to get the the bottom of the climb you want to get to. The book could really use about 10 more pages of detailed trail maps and wall diagrams to ease the hike in. First time climbers in the area should prepare to do a little extra way-finding. Once you know the area and where you are, the book is excellent.
