There's some information about the cross country ski trails near the Crest. Most of it is accurate, though there may be additional trails up at the Crest that have been blazed since publication.
For climbers, most of the routes listed are big wall routes, not bouldering areas, so the book isn't of much use if a climber wants to do boulder problems. However, Mike does suggest that climbers get in touch with the New Mexico Mountain Club (NMMC) to find out more about what climbing is available. NMMC is a good information source for hikers as well.
NOTE: parts of the Sandias are closed during the summer to allow falcons and other raptors to raise their young. The Shield is one of those areas, and there are others. Check with the Ranger District (or NMMC) about areas closed to climbers and hikers.
