Fixed Pin is coming out with some great guidebooks, in addition to those already mentioned they are coming out with some South Platte books that are pretty amazing. The northern volume is already out and the Southern volume is in the works.

There seems to be a pretty decent guidebook for most places these days. If you're interested in an area in particular I've got a few I'd be willing to part with. For example, Clear Creek Canyon, Independence Pass, and maybe a few others. Just not my Eldo or Splatte guides, I'll be holding on to those...

Colorado Bouldering Front Range

Much better than the Falcon Guide 'Bouldering Colorado'

For sport, unfortunately, you really have to get seperate guides for seperate areas. Most of the guide books that try to get all of the areas end up just being complete shit. I personally hate the Falcon Guide 'Rock Climbing Colorado'. Honestly, the route section here on MP is better than that book. Figure out where you are going to climb more and buy that guide. Then, slowly build up your library.

Rock Climbing Colorado by Stewart Green. Covers the whole state and I've found it useful.

For sport in Boulder Canyon and Clear Creek I like the Rolofson guides. I find the topo format really informative.
Mabe's guide to Clear Creek is also excellent, although pictorially based.
I'm not as fond of the D'Antonio Boulder Canyon guide. The photos are often excellent, but there seem to be more errors than in the other guides. It is more up to date.
The MP database alone can get you to many places.
Nevertheless, keep climbing and you may end up with dozens of guidebooks!

Thanks for all the suggestions. The new Levine book for Eldo is available at Sharp End Publishing. Getting that to start.

Actually "The Voo" is as much Front Range as the Colorado areas, at least that's my understanding.
See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_Ra...

Also, I guess the Rossiter guides are a bit dated both as to content and style, but I think they're fine for finding and getting up the classic trad routes around Boulder.
