Supertopo: Red Rocks Climbing
The Supertopo guidebook by Greg Barnes, "Red Rocks Climbing," is an outstanding choice for the visiting climber. The book addresses only two or three hundred routes, but they are all top quality. The coverage is detailed, complete, and accurate. The route beta is there, of course, but there are also thorough explanations of the approach, descent, and history. Although the focus is mainly on traditional classics, there are enough short routes and sport climbs to keep the out-of-towner busy even on relaxed days. Available in both a print and an e-book version at the Supertopo website.
