The title says it all.

I've seen the Webster guide mentioned in some older posts here, as well as a Rockfax guide, but nothing recent. The Rockfax guide appears to be out of print, and Webster's guide is not the most user-friendly.

So, what's the current opinion on the best guidebooks for these areas?

Sorry, but the Webster guide really is the best for Cathedral and Whitehorse.

You can still get a copy of the Handren Rockfax guide here, http://www.chesslerbooks.com/...m.asp?idProduct=2835 but at $50, it's more than double the original price. Furthermore, despite having a more user-friendly format, it has some serious errors and is less comprehensive than Webster's guide.

For Cannon, get Secrets of the Notch by Jon Sykes.

http://www.chauvinguides.com has some good beta under the "Classic Area Rock Climbs" page.
