The non-route related pictures are a little zany and some of them are not my style (the cover is a good example of what I'm talking about), but I can see how others might find them amusing.
The book offered some info/history about climbing at Devils Tower, and pictures of climbers from the 60's and 70's that I found interesting.
By using the book ahead of time, I was able to act confident and quickly trick the Rangers into thinking I knew Devils Tower. So after a few questions, thy wished me a good climb and left me alone.
The full featured pictures are not that crisp and the black and white, hand drawn topos are similar to the other books. There are some errors too that contribute to the general consensus that this not the best guidebook around. Durrance, for example, is not really in need of big pro as the author suggests due to the ability to find other pro along the way. The rappels can be wrong and some distances you need to double check.
The pros are seeing Frank and some other people of the old time climbers in their youth again! Seeing the pancake bike is a fun little piece and there are other sections that are fun. The cards to not have to carry up the book is fun too if you want to rid yourself of packs and free climb shirtless.
