Greg Opland has raised the bar on guide book quality. Phoenix Rock II borrows information from older guides to the area, but Greg injects his own attitudes and perspectives, making this truly his own. The topo quality is second to none, a huge leap ahead of the current standard. The history included is invaluable and helps to make the text very readable. Photo quality is excellent. Makes me want to buy a ticket and go to Phoenix to climb right now!

The definitive guide to Central Az. rockclimbing! Building on previous volumes by Jim Waugh, Greg Opland has raised the bar, and taken this guide to new heights. With development threatening many areas in this guidebook, this may well be the last chance to get the 'full scoop' on some of the best winter rockclimbing in the USA! Well written and illustrated, outlying areas have been included once again to help those with a thirst for exploration of some of the fine outlying climbing spots near the Phoenix metropolitan area. This book wins handsdown over the one sheet guides as well as the falcon press 'best of' guides.

Anxiously awaiting this authors effort on a guide to the Supersition Wilderness (if he ever does one!)

Though published over 10 years ago, the beta on crag locations and index of First Ascensionists is quite useful. Contains routes not covered in the Marty Karabin fold out topos or the Falcon Guide. Three stars because content on approaches, gear placements, and hanger condition are dated.

There are routes and entire crags in this book that are not in the Falcon guide. If you are serious about knowing the options in the area, you need this book. Do know that the book is a bit old-school in that is doesn't give a lot of route detail on each climb.
