Bought both of the mentioned guide books as I'm headed to the Tower in a Week. Think they are the shit. Very accurate as well as having great photos and good rap beta for the Tower. Still have my Dingus McGee and The Last Pioneer Woman copy also and it will be in my pack as well. Headed back to the Gunks for 3 weeks of climbing in the fall and looking forward to the new guide book and a new perspective at climbing cracks that go in the other direction. Will be bring my Todd Swain guide book for some adventure as being miss lead is always fun. Remember no guide book is a substitute for good judgement.
