"There are upwards of 100 climbs in this new guide to “New Directions Cliffs and Kern Slabs”. This guide encompasses almost all of those climbs. The map-like format makes it very easy to find any particular route, especially those located on New Directions Cliffs, which has several adjacent climbing faces, and which in the past has been difficult to decipher." - Herb Laeger shared on this thread.
