Ohio eh? Come on over!
Perfect guidebook for locals and visitors, big area, lots of crags.
We cover the best of 'em.
(ok, not your little local secret ninja crag that is on private property... but the good known stuff!).

I used to live in Sacramento...don't ask why I moved to Ohio, everyone does. I visit nor cal about 4 times a year though and go to Tahoe every time. I know about a lot of the areas (Donner, Consumnas, Rocklin boulders, Phantom Spires, um Yosemite, of course) but I'd love to have a guidebook too.

Ohio rocks or so they say.
The guide will get you all the way down to the Kern and up to Oregon, so you can stray from your old haunts.
