Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Vol. I: Lower Narrows to Dream Canyon
Mark Rolofson, Free West Rock Guides, May 2006
The companion to "Volume II: The Upper Canyon" is finally available. It covers sport climbs (and a few trad climbs) in lower Boulder Canyon, from Eagle Rock to the Boulder Falls area. Also included are Lower and Upper Dream Canyon. The volume includes more than 525 climbs, with 160 routes never documented in any other guidebook.
Plotinus Wall in Lower Dream Canyon is documented for the first time in a printed guidebook. Many routes on Midnight Rock in Upper Dream Canyon are also documented for the first time. Not included are predominantly trad crags, such as the Dome, Elephant Buttresses, Brick Wall, and Cob Rock.
This is the typical Rolofson guide, with topos and route descriptions, but very few photos. The topos aren't artistic, but they are good enough and are fairly detailed, showing accurate bolt counts and locations of the crux moves.
Sport climbers wanting to check out newer routes in lower Boulder Canyon, Lower Dream Canyon, and Upper Dream Canyon should definitely buy this book.
