The second climb to be put up on El Cap, it was Royal Robbins answer to Warren Harding's Nose route. Harding had forced a direct line up the center of El Cap, which took 45 days, required 125 hand-drilled bolts, and was climbed siege style with fixed ropes. Climbers who take on this huge climb should be prepared for a difficult odyssey up one of the largest and most spectacular rock faces in North America.

This book sucked.

The Falcon Guide to Yosemite Free Climbs covers an enormous number of climbs. And there are an enormous number of climbs in Yosemite Valley. But it doesn't cover any of them in very much detail. I had difficulty using this book to find my climbs, and I noticed that the Supertopo book gave much more detailed information. However, the Supertopo book was limited to the more popular climbs only.

But having already purchased the Falcon Guide on Amazon, I was stuck with it. I discovered that by using the free driving and hiking maps provided by the park service, I was able to fill in most of the missing gaps. It turns out this book will tell you, for example, which way to walk from the Church Bowl parking lot to the climbing wall, but it won't tell you where the parking lot is. Or in other words, it assumes you already know your way around the Valley.

That said, the climbing walls are so huge, and the park service maps good enough, that this book is adequate for a first timer, though not ideal. Once you have your bearings, the route-finding beta is pretty good. The photos of the walls are very useful. And although it seemed like the written directions were missing detail, they were accurate.

If you are coming from out-of-state to spend a week or two in Yosemite and plan to stay on the trade routes only (like we were), then you would probably be better served with the Supertopo guide. On the other hand, if you live near Yosemite or visit often enough to venture beyond the most popular climbs, then the Falcon Guide would be the better of the 2 books.

The most important function of any climbing guide book (in my opinion) is getting you to your selected route. Great topos are vital, but if you can never find the route...what does it matter. Don Reid is a master at both getting you there and great topo beta. Even if it is your first time in the Valley, the book gives such great directions you would be hard pressed to get lost. And, as always, Don is a master topo "artist". Don't accept any cheap substitutes, this is the book to have.
Zuser
Has more beta than the super topo guide. Best guide available currently.

A nice book that has gotten me to many good climbs. However, there is a new comprehensive guide book to Yosemite Valley in the works, so don't spend more than $20 on this old version as it's value will soon be plummeting!
