Backcountry Gear - A Bouldering Guide to Utah (Rare & Out of Print) (Fall 2016)
This rare, out of print book is a definitive guide to bouldering in Utah.
Mike Beck and Jeff Baldwin were sitting on a boulder at the Gate Buttress in Little Cottonwood Canyon, working on an article for Climbing Magazine. The conversation soon lead to a discussion about ll the details involved with writing a comprehensive guide to Utah. Mike was documenting all the boulder problems in Little Cottonwood Canyon while Jeff was busy working on a guide to the sandstone bouldering in Joe's Valley. Both believed these areas were great places to boulder and had even greater potential. The biggest problem they faces was that the areas were in their infancy and a guidebook at the time would soon be outdated. So, they continued to compile a comprehensive book over the course of 1998 to 2003 until the book was released with over 5000 problems in 22 areas. Full of detailed maps and photographs, this is sure to be a collector's item for any Utah climber.
