This guide has proven excellent in getting me to several seldom-visited places. The 2nd edition is now out and has a few new routes but replaced some classics (Bells Traverse). The scrambles go from easy to pushing roped climbing (Kiener's) so there is something for everybody.

Although well written, the descriptions do leave considerable route finding up to the reader. Don't expect to always know exactly where to go.
