Is there only there Owen River Gorge by Marty Lewis available?

And is there a big difference between the 9th and 10th edition? I see I can get the 9th shipped for $9 off amazon vs $30 for the 10th.

I'm doing my first trip out there in 3 weeks!

The new book is well worth the extra $21!! Unless you pay close attention to the descriptions/pictures it would be easy to start up the wrong route. So many new routes have been added.

On the other hand you can get by with the old book and MP. It's just more of a hassle.

I'd look at the publishing date of the book. I know that 10th edition was published in 2005, but the 10th edition is missing a lot of routes that are logged here, on MP. Like the Great wall of China has 26+ routes logged on MP but the 10th edt only has ~10 routes logged.

Thanks for the advice. The 9th is published in 2000
So I'm gonna pick up the 10th.
