Hey ya'll
My g/f and I will be moving back from AK to IN/NY for a couple of months before heading out west somewhere. I'd like to make stops at Cirque of the Towers, Sinks, Ten Sleep, Devil's Tower, then SD for Spearfish and The Needles. Any recommendation on 1 or 2 guidebooks that will cover most or all of these areas. As of right now I was thinking "Rock Climbing Wyoming" as we'll only have 1 or 2 days in each area and we'll probably be searching out 5.6 to 5.9s. I don't want to get a guide for a single area at this time because we're not sure where we're going to end up once we move out west, so something a little more comprehensive would be great.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Just use the proj then. It's what this place is good for!

The falcon Climbing Wyoming book is probably a good start, but also actively seeking out beta and partners here.

Outside of a few super-crags, most of Wyoming is so wildly underdeveloped that even huge guidebooks like Huey's punk-rock Ten Sleep book are incomplete at best. But contact the right local and you'll get a guided tour.
