      Comments about Globe Pequot TODD SWAIN The Gunks Guide:

      This book is very inaccurate. I've heard this from other people and also experienced it first hand. It will say a route is a 5.2 and will show a 5.6 route instead - for example Willie's Weep. Plus, consider that Todd Swain is 6"4'.


      The Gunks is the place ... great tool!

      Comments about Globe Pequot TODD SWAIN The Gunks Guide:

      We used this book but found it often hard to find the routes (I think it was just hard until we asked other climbers which route they were on.) Once we got to a route, this helped greatly... but I have since switched to another book that has much clearer diagrams and information on bolts, bad pitons and has much more info on the more popular climbs... I would always have both when we go again.
