  •     Let's get this straight, "Rock Climbing New England" is one of those select guidebooks. Author Stewart Green picks out 15 areas in all of New England and only describes certain climbs in each. That said, there are almost 750 climbs detailed, not at all an insignificant number, and from what I can tell most are done quite well.In some cases Green repeats information already available in Webster or other guides. Still, it does have some of the new climbs on Cathedral and Whitehorse, like George Hurley's great 10c addition to the Cathedral Ledge North End, Bailsafe. The coolest thing is that Green includes information on areas that to my knowledge have never been included in any guidebook, like Rose Ledge in central Mass and Owl's Head in New Hampshire.Sure there are those who will find fault, there always are. But in spite of having set a very lofty goal, "Rock Climbing New England" succeeds. If you can only afford one, or just want the only available info on one of those obscure places that you have only heard about through the grapevine, this guide will be well worth the investment.
  •     Good guide, lacking in a few places up in New England. But I guess it's hard to put EVERYTHING in one little book.
  •     This book seems like a great book. We havnt used it yet (because it is stil winter) but have gone through and found some climbs we plan on trying as soon as it warms up.We are both begginer climbers, currently top roping only, and this book seems to focus more on lead climbing attributes of routes. Reading it does give you a feel for the area though, and we think a lot of the routes should be easy to top rope (or maybe we will just have to learn to lead climb by summer!)
  •     Great gift for the new or experienced rock climber. Lots of good information included in this very easy to pack and take with you on your rock climbing travels.
  •     I am a rock climber native to California, I've been climbing for a few years now and love (and sorely miss) the west coast granite of Yosemite, Tuolumne, etc. When I came to school in Boston I purchased this book, hoping to get a comprehensive guide of all outdoor climbing in the area.This book is pretty useful for the larger, well-hit climbing spots around New England. It has good beta photos with the routes drawn on. Also, for big areas such as Cathedral Ledge or Acadia, almost every route I can find beta on anywhere else is listed here.However, there is not a single Topo in this book! For most multipitch climbs, each pitch is rated and has a few sentences of beta, but it is almost always lacking in detail (particularly on protection). Most climbs do not have heights. Also, less well-known spots, such as Hammond Pond or Farley Ledges, have almost no beta listed, if you're lucky you'll get a paragraph description and a few sentences on how to get there.If you're focused on the Boston Metropolitan area (as I mostly am) I would recommend Boston Rocks, 2002 Edition ([...] Has great beta on areas like Hammond and Quincy Quarries. Otherwise, for climbing in the New England area, this book is your best bet. It has most of the information you need, although sometimes it's outdated. Get the newest information or beta on the route you're going to climb at [...] and then bring this book along for info on FAs, pics, etc, but don't rely wholly on it!
  •     This may have been good in the past, but I'd recommend getting something else nowadays. Using this at Rumney was a severe letdown when compared to the content the book 'Rumney' had. It was missing detail for entire walls. The detail for Quincy Quarries was also severely out of date. I'll still open it up before a trip, but I don't expect completeness whatsoever.
  •     lots of places, lots of info about each, directions, rules, type of climbing, each cliff etc. maybe not as extensive as the guides for only one place, but very useful
