This climbing guide will be your essential companion the City of Rocks. Dave Bingham has been producing many generations of City of Rocks guidebooks, but this is the very first in full color! Plus navigating is made much easier with excellent maps, topos, photos, and descriptions. It’s also easy to get inspired with stunning action photography. There are other places named City of Rocks, but this is THE City of Rocks. It’s been called America’s premiere granite sport-climbing area, and is just as often praised for its unique trad climbing. With more than 1,000 routes to choose from, you can crimp overhanging patina, grunt up an offwidth, cruise a multi-pitch 5.8, or summit a dramatic spire—all within a short walk of your campsite. Nearby you’ll find historic inscriptions, hikes, mountain biking, and the funky Western town of Almo to keep you supplied and entertained on rest days. Also included here for the first time is the sweet climbing at nearby Castle Rocks State Park.
