A new type of climbing guide to a cherished national park—with stunning action photos
Best Climbs Rocky Mountain National Park showcases the classic routes and best climbs in America's largest national park. Ideal for both local and nonlocal climbers who want to hit as many select climbs as possible in a weekend or a short visit, it provides visually appealing, to-the-point information. Longtime Colorado climber Stewart Green filters out more than 150 first-rate routes—from moderate beginner routes to challenging expert climbs.
Each section covers a different climbing area and route history, and also includes entertaining sidebars on local climbing history and trivia. All routes are shown clearly on detailed color photo topos, alongside stunning action photos and a contemporary, exciting design.
This is the third volume in FalconGuides' Best Climbs series, which made its debut in 2009 and represents a new type of guidebook to America's most popular climbing destinations.
