Right , I meant like a preview page of how the book looks on any given page. The website has a bunch of photos of people climbing in "areas featured in the book" but no actual picture of what the book looks like on the inside.

Got it, looks amazing. A good counter point to some of the "collectors edition" guidebooks hitting the market lately. Great info, love the local take on the "star" system.

Lots of long term questions about random bolt lines answered by this book. If I had to gripe about anything it would be upgrading Riddler. Sandbags like that are part of the reason people go to Maple and Red Rocks instead, and there's nothing like having B&T to your self on a sunny winter day ;)

This book will give me a lot more options on the rare busy day out that way in the future.

Misty, Just curious if the type of road sign used for the star rating has any particular significance? Does it denote a particular style or type of climbing or something? By the way, book looks great, I can't wait to pick up a copy!

Yes Ken it the symbols for star grades (obviously 3 of anything means classic) have underlying meanings. For instance, the stars for 'Bogus Pedophile Charge' has an adult and a child cross walk sign ;P.

Cheers Ken! Hope that you enjoy the book!

Why are the Utah Guides always ____ "bible"?

Rob T · · Unknown Hometown · Joined Jun 2006 · Points: 10

Is there another named that? The bouldering book picked it up as a nickname bc of the black cover and fact that it was the only guide to LCC

Brian in SLC · · Sandy, Utah · Joined Oct 2003 · Points: 15,592

Yeah..."the black bible"...nickname.

To my knowledge, this is the only guidebook title for Utah climbing that has "bible" in the title.

In fact...is there any US guidebook with "bible" in the title?

What say ye, collectors of guidebooks (Nathan, Greg)? I can't think of one.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
