So if those problems did not exist it would be a book for your first few days at the Gunks, and then you could (should)throw it out - perhaps just after you cut the pictures you want save from it.


LoL... yeah, the picture of the NYC ticker tape parade (p172) is a keeper, always what I think about when I think about climbing.

Can you point to any Williams guidebook that doesn't have photos of the entire cliff?


Mike, I just think that the color photos were really well done and each was of a much closer pespective than the typical Williams photos. No offense to Dick but at my level I really want to make sure I'm not on the 10 or 11, as I would likely DIE! Well, that's a little melodramatic, but it could get ugly.
