Comments about Handbook Publishing JERRY HANDREN North Conway Rock Climbs:
This gorgeous, full-color guidebook completely opened up the North Conway area for me. Clear photo topos of the cliffs abound, both in broad overview and then in smaller sections. There are great maps of access trails and frequent GPS coordinates. Inspiring photos of climbers on the routes are usually placed within 2 pages of the route beta, including page numbers for easy reference. Route length, FA history, suggested rack, and even optimal season/time of day to climb is included with most routes.
I have become obsessed with the cliffs of North Conway and this one book has been responsible for me feeling comfortable enough to head up there on my own and with partners who don't know the area. It's worth every penny and then some.
