When you get a guide book for an ENTIRE state, especially one as big as Colorado, I was not expecting it to have that many routes. When the package came, I was amazed at how heavy it is. This is a thick, dense book. I was pleasantly surprised at how much detail it went into in each area. It is a "best of" kind of book, but one with a lot more information that I was expecting. When we were unable to climb at Garden of the Gods because of rain on the sandstone, we had some other options because of this book. On one day we drove over to Shelf Road (a bit more that an hour from southern Colorado Springs) and had a great time. If you know you are going to be climbing in one particular area, I would try to get the local guidebook for it, but this book was a good overview of what there is to climb in Colorado.
O.k. Guide for whole Colorado. I rather by a Guide for a specific area because the Colorado guide is very superficial and many time it was just not right with route information's. Maybe to old?
Great guide for unexplored areas. I showed this book, and some areas, to a veteran couple who have climbed Colorado for some time and they also where impressed. Easy instructions to routes with details needed for a great day on the cragg. Would have given five stars but found some new routes not in the guide, but then again would not have found them at all without the book.
Great climbing book. Essential if you live in or are visiting Colorado. Not many Durango climbs in it though. Stewart come to durango and add some climbs to this book. Very detailed and thorough. Gets you to the climb, will not get you up it...
I'm fairly new to Colorado and this book really let me explore the climbing areas much quicker than if I had just gone by word of mouth. It has pretty much everything, including some of the lesser-known spots. Great if you're new to the area or are looking for more places to climb.
It's not a bad guide book to get you to your general area but it is missing a lot of crags and routes. This book does not include Sport Park in Boulder.
Lots of breadth in areas described, but poor specificity. I'm more interested in moderate grade sport routes, and found the book to be somewhat lacking in helpful info. It did point me in the right direction though.
Very outdated, especially with the existence of Mountain Project.
