I bought this book and although I was glad to have it over just Mountain Project, seeing my friend's newer book by brad Young I was impressed at how much better that book is. Better topos, more routes, more details. Get the newer book by Brad Young.

The title says it, "best climbing guide I know." I'm not being paid to say this; don't know David Rubine. Why is it the best climbing guide I know? BECAUSE IT HAS ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS! The topos are accurate, and often backed up with excellent annotated black&white photos.
I'm basically a novice lead climber. I want 5.4's. Most guidebooks, should they lower themselves to include these "wimpy" routes, give little to no written or pictorial guidance. Rubine devotes equal energy to easy and hard climbs. As the previous reviewer notes, he even covers class 3/4 scrambles to interesting summits.

Dave Rubine's collection of recorded rock climbs for Pinnacles National Monument is comprehensive and fun to read for avid rock climbers. Whether you are looking for sport climbs or more traditional climbing, nothing is omitted. Even 3rd and 4th Class climbs are listed. With ratings on all climbs and written descriptions on most, staying on the correct climb is not hard. But beware the musical chairs handholds at Pinnacles. With descriptions like the "Know what you are getting into category" you can stay out of trouble. The construction of the spine is sturdy. Most of all, for you number tickers, there is a checklist of climbs by rating and two full indexes for cross referencing first ascentionists with page numbers and climbs alphabetically.
