"This guide covers more than 1700 bouldering problems from the 50 best ares in Northern California. It includes the Bay Area, Lake Tahoe, Sonora and Bear Valley, Bald Rock, and Mt Lassen, the North Coast and all the classic spots in between.

The scenery is as varied as the rock: beaches, mountains, river beds, oak-shaded foothills, and High Sierra peaks. In addition, there is info on another 20 bonus areas with hints of the limitless potential just waiting to be discovered. Get out there and send!"
