Review by: rockmaninoff, 2004-12-12

This book does a good job at what would be a daunting task for any author--compiling Utah's best climbing into one tome. That said, this book is best suited for road trippers or casual Utah travelers who are not planning on spending many months exploring what each of Utah's climbing areas really has to offer. This is the only guidebook still in print (summer '04) that has information about Maple Canyon. Photos and topos are usually unique and insightful but sometimes muddled.
