Format: Paperback
This is currently the only in print guidebook covering the areas of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and Quartz Mountain Nature Park. This is a great book if you are brand new or relatively new to climbing in Oklahoma. Its a good book to get you out to the main popular crags and many of the classic routes. Where it is lacking is the fact that it is only a select book, hence the reason for me giving it only 3 stars. Many Many routes were left out of this book. Many of the routes left out are not necessarily classics, but there were some really good routes left out. The author has also changed the historical ratings of many of the climbs as published in many of the older guides. One thing I can say is the the author has most certainly climbed most if not all the routes listed in the book. In my opinion that helps to makes a better book.

This book (2nd edition) is basically a reprint of of the first edition. The only key differences are a redesign of the layout, the addition of a few new..not so classic routes, great color photos, and a little updated route information. For the most part...the second edition is the same as the first edition just in a prettier format.

I would definitely recommend this book to those who are not familiar with the Refuge and Quartz, and for those who like to collect the guidebooks for their local crags...but if you are already familiar with the area and already have the first edition, don't expect to find much new from this book. It (either version) was a needed book as the more comprehensive Oklahoma climbers guide by Chuck Lohn has been out of print for quite some time now and hard to find.

Overall a good book for the price, but lacking in thoroughness.... But it is after all only a SELECT book.

Happy Climbing

"The author has also changed the historical ratings of many of the climbs as published in many of the older guides"

Some of the routes may have a rating change from the older guides due to a hold broken, some rock is no longer as featured as it was at the time the route was established some 20+ years ago, etc.

Take Wild Child for instance. It went up some 20 + years ago and was 10d. A huge hold broke off and is now 11d. Heck, it might even be harder? Lost My Religion same thing...
So, here's the thing... You leave the ratings the same as they were and the route is a sandbag, you change the route rating and the criticism starts.
Climb long enough and routes change, simple as that.
