Going to be spending some time in WY and i'm looking for modern guide books for vedauwoo, Devil's tower, the wind river range, and grand teton. I'll also throw in custer SP.

Wyoming climbing is fantastic. Stop in Laramie’s or Lander’s gear shops for books if you can’t find used ones online. If you like big cracks, veduawoo and war bonnet in the winds are dreamy. Don’t overlook single pitch climbs at the tower. Topping out is fun, but the quality rock is at the base. And, lastly the Tetons is full of great easy-moderate climbing and soloing. Irene’s is all its cracked out to be, but it’s hard to beat the adventure of pieces together the traverse.

Thanks for the beta nick! I'm definitely stoked to check out what the state has to offer.

Pick up a Poor Person's Guidebook for Devils Tower or the Devils Tower National Monument Climbing Handbook.  Both fine guides and cheap. Both better than the "modern" alternative. The tower hasn't changed much...

Poor Person's Guidebook

For the Tetons get Ortenbergers guidebook. Tons of bedtime reading, simply the best. Treat yourself.

Teton Guidebook

Winds get the latest Kelsey. Beta for most of the classics and many of the "newer" harder routes are on Mountain Project.

Custer is tough. Mountain Project is about it. The Extreme Angles "Needles" is junk. 

Rushmore, definitely get the Busse/Burr guidebook.

Don't forget Fremont Canyon...

Hey Ben, if you’re an AAC member you can check out guidebooks from the library for free. They’ll mail for free to you and you just need to mail them back. Great way to snag several guides if you don’t plan on needing them long term. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
