North Table Mountain: Rock Climbs at the Golden Cliffs

By Jason Haas and Ben Schneider, Fixed Pin Publishing, 2008

This highly anticipated and long overdue book is Table's first color guide. Virtually every single route is photographed for easy identification and the banner across the top works like a flip book – the yellow box moves across the pages, showing where you are along the cliff line so no more walking up to the base with the confused look on your face going "ok so where are we?". Not only that, but routes are color coded for easy identification – sport routes are yellow, trad are blue, and boulder problems are green, making the book extremely user friendly. The book is fully comprehensive, including 284 routes and a smattering of boulder problems, nearly 100 of which have never been documented before, including the previously undocumented South Quarry area. The authors also climbed every single route to ensure accuracy and to normalize route grades/quality ratings.

Part of all proceeds from the book goes to the Access Fund.

Areas included:

Golden Cliffs: Colorado

by Peter Hubbel, Chockstone Press, 1997.

There isn't much in the way of beta/descriptions, but this guide will tell you what's out there. The
topos can be hard to read, and there are more than a few mistakes - some whole pictures are
completely mislabeled as the wrong area! Nevertheless, if you're planning on spending a bit of
time at Table, this guide will definitely help (even though it may frustrate as well) - "Rock
Climbing Colorado" will not get you very far! When you go there, don't be shy about asking
people to help you with orientation and climb locations - it's a common thing up there." [Ed
Note - This is true. Rock Climbing Colorado made us lead a 5.12 route that looked and
sounded exactly like a 5.7+. Whoops.]

North Table Mountain, Digital Climbing Guidebook

Tod Anderson,

"The quintessential urban crag, Golden's own North Table Mountain provides a great place to catch some after work cragging, or a sunny place on a cold winter's day to get outside on the stone. This guide contains up-to-date information on over 300 routes in three separate major areas. Dozens of individual and overview pictures have been assembled in addition to navigation way-points, making navigation a snap in this digital only climbing guide."

Tod Anderson uses "all the proceeds from [his] guidebooks for new routes and maintaining existing routes."

Cost $4.99.
