Excellent, standard-setting guidebookThis guidebook is amazing. It has excellent and accurate beta with tons of phototopos, and it's actually fun to read. It's the best and most comprehensive guide to Araps.
Probably the best guide book for any crag in AustrEasy to use, great photos, topos and decent routes. A great read to boot!
AwesomeSimply the top of it's genre. This guidebook is the best guidebook I have seen internationally. Full colour, high res photo topos of every climb. Clear and easy to understand overhead topos. Great full page colour pics of people doing all sorts of routes (not just crazy hard ones) - great qaulity pics too, no bum shots. The best thing about this guide though, besides its slick production, is the choice of routes and inclusion of a lot of lower grade classics. This guidebook will work wonders at bringing beginners to araps as it has great photos and descriptions of the easier classic multipitch routes. You can spend loads of time reading and checking out future climbs in this book.
