Product Description

The most comprehensive guide of Rock Climbing in the Southwestern Utah area. Over 300 pages containing over 50 crags with nearly 1000 climbs. This would keep any and all climbers busy year round. Yes, year round. Head for the mountains in the heat of the summer to cool off. Then when the weather sets in for the winter you can bask in the sun in Snow Canyon and the VR Gorge. Who needs a winter climbing gym, they don't exist here, this guide and a little gear is all you need.

Todd Out Did Himself....
Todd is a "tool" no doubt as most of us agree locally. "Huge ego for someone who does not climb worth a shit!" (famous local fa-er) He bolts up what should be nice trad line excessively. Puts up routes that have no right or reason to be established. He never cleans his routes, rather encourages those of us silly enough to climb his new routes to do it for him. He thinks he owns the place and of course really just takes clients from the fat farms (what we call our local spas who charge $400 per night) up the same 5.5 route over and over in Snow Canyon. All that said, despite the hint of ego laced throughout his book, it is a good guide to all of our crags. We all know a guy like this makes zero money doing the book, so please give his much needed ego a boost and buy the book cheap at Outdoor Outlet if in the area. Or just print out my first-hand account of St. George Rock on and save some trees. Cheers.

I just ordered this book, because I love to read guide books, and I think it is a fantastic book. The pictures and descriptions are wonderful and provide wonderful day dreaming material. The book contains enough information about local areas to be helpful in planning a road trip.

Good book
The book is great, very descriptive routes, and good colored pictures. A do agree with Dow though, Todd is a tool, but seeing how this review is about the book, and not Todd, I give it a 5/5.
