Quick take on it:
The effort and time put into this guide by Hass and Lawyer is truly evident. 1st rate and extremely detailed and organized. This thing reads like a master encyclopedia on routes in all areas of the Dacks. (Index is by route name, so if you know the name you dont have to know what cliff its on)
It IS the fattest and largest guide book in the NorthEast, (and would give even the largest of guides anywhere else a run for the money) Hardly any filler anywhere, just routes, pages and pages of them. In fact 670 pages. Maybe only 30 of them bouldering.
The ratings seem to be aligned on a few routes to more with Yosemite standards then the old school Dacks sandbags.
Only one eyebrow raiser in casual arm chair climbing mode, is the numerous G gear rated routes. (my *rough* guess it seems like over 60% of the routes get the nod for G.) Although Lawyer and Hass do mark where a route is G at the grade and R X elsewhere.
Such as Teddys Trauma 5.7- G (5.4 R) or Space Walk 5.9 G (5.7 X)
Well the legacy of confusion and mystery of climbing in the Adirondacks for the most part seem to be abated, but even armed with this mega detailed guide, the Adirondacks will still be able to deliver a true adventure in all sense of the word. Plus this thing is soooo heavy you may end of leaving it at the car most times and relying on a few photo copies or scribbled notes to make you way up through the tangled confusion of cliffs and awesome wilderness.
