Hey everyone,

Just looking for people to chime in on a question that i have had for the past few months. I am heading to CO in late June with the GF and have found killer route info here on MP but as the time of the trip gets closer i was thinking that i would rather have a guild book of the climbing areas we want to climb, not just print outs from MP.

...So...is there a worth while "Alpine" climbers guidebook out there? or something that could pass for one, or should i just use the MP app and continue to just print out route and approach data.

thanks for any help you can give.

Cheers,
Peter

uhh, Colorado is a big state. Where are you looking to climb? RMNP has its own guide (Gillet). Other classics like the Elingwood Arete are included in Roach's 14er guide and other places. A little more detail as to where you are planning on going might help.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
