Does anyone know of a good sport climbing guide for southern california/the desert area north of LA?

I have Southern California Sport Climbing (3rd Edition) and I am not pleased with it...

The mountain project High Desert Destination area is a good cross check for the sport climbing guide, especially New Jack City. There is also a new guide for the San Bernardino Mountains. Hidden Treasures East: Big Bear Basin. There is plenty of sport climbing at Hidden Valley Pinnacles and such. Nathan Stokes

I would say the best guide you are going to find is Mountain Project.
But for good sport check out Echo cliffs and Malibu Creek.
Louie Anderson, "Sport Climbing in the Santa Monicas," 2003 is an ok guide book for this but there has been a serious amount of development at echo since this book.
