Supertopo Zion Guide Available
« on: July 24, 2009, 10:00:24 am »
I just finished printing all 232 pages of the new zion guide.

It looks pretty amazing, but quite different from the usual sp guide book. There route information is more than adequate but not pitch by pitch like we are used too with sp guides. The quality of the pictures, route drawings, layout and presentation is stellar. Really nice to see plenty of space devoted to history. Some nice pieces written by JM and Mike Anderson.

You can get a copy over on supertopo

Approximately break down of routes by grade:

5.5 - 1
5.6 - 1
5.7 - 14
5.8 - 16
5.9 - 26
5.9+ - 7

5.10+ - 32
5.11- - 40

5.12- - 6
5.12 - 15
5.12+ - 9

Aid routes:
There are 25 aid routes in the book the eaiset being Moonlight at 5.9 C1 and hardness Swoop Gimp at 5.9 C3

I could probably find time to list them if anyone wants them.
