Yossi's knowledge of the area, routes and local contacts is as good as guide books of the area are. Better route descriptions are always a plus, but with changing conditions these are as decent as you can get. Worth the price.

Just came back from Ecuador where I climbed four of the mountains included in this book. While the pictures and route descriptions were excellent, they are woefully out of date. For example, in the ten years since the book was published, they've built a cable from Quito to the start of the climb on Ruca Pichincha, making most of that chapter useless. Our guide showed us on the pictures which areas were no longer covered in snow/ice, where there was more danger of rockfall, etc. Unless you're an extremely experienced climber, you're risking your life if you depend on this book.

It has a lot of very interesting information and the route descriptions are great. It has information about prices and places to stay. If you already know how to climb and you want to go climb something this is the book for you.

Not a very comprehensive guide to climbing, found much of the information dated.
