Rock Climbing Utah is the only climbing guide I need when I go climbing in Utah. It has all the best towers, a good Indian Creek section, some Zion walls, and remote stuff like Capitol Reef and the San Rafael Swell. I highly recommend it to any climber contemplating a road trip to Utah. It's well-written, concise, and complete. An all-around great book!
