Is this book worth the $27? I've tried to look online but can't find any reviews. The few pictures that I've seen on the wolverine publishing website look good, but I don't know how many pictures like that are in the book. Being only about 2 years old I doubt the book's outdated, but want to make sure that it's worth it before I buy it. I already have Adirondack Rock and will probably be getting the Rumney book so that takes care of 2 of the 8 areas (assuming the same problems are in both).

Just so you know, the Adirondacks aren't in New England.

Depends on where you want to climb. If you're looking to go to Mac Pond, why bother? the Adirondack Rock guide has more complete coverage of the area, looking to go to P-Way, Lincoln Woods etc? Yes, it's totally worth it. Wolverine produces excellent guidebooks with very complete beta. Pony up suckaaaaaa. Blue Eyed Climber: One of the Dacks premier bouldering area, MacKenzie Pond is featured in the New England Bouldering guide, I believe this is what the OP was referring too.

also the NE bouldering book has a LOT more coverage of the boulders at Rumney. It is still probably lacking so you can fill stuff in with the Mtn project info.

The Rumney guide has very little for boulder coverage.

Pway has better bouldering anyway.
