The back and front covers are starting to flake and peel lamination along the edges. And that was only a 30 minute ride on Metro North.

The content is great but I'm wondering how well the covers are going to hold out.

Maybe if you weren't sweating so much while reading all the route descriptions...

Try keeping a towel or chalk bag handy!

Obviously it's the caustic air of those Metro North trains. (I rode New Haven to Stamford for about a year.)

It was in my pack the whole time...

It looks like a poor job of lamination. If you take the back of your fingernail and run it across the cover with a little pressure, the lamination will come away from the paper, taking some of the underlying image with it. Not that we can do much about it, but I don't think it's going to last too long.

Mostly a bump for what appears to be a great guide. I can't wait to use it!

It's very good... But there is ONE HUGE problem with it!

And that is choosing which area or climb to do! There are simply too many! \:D
