BOULDER TOPOGRAPHICS: A PICTORIAL GUIDE TO BOULDER CLIMBS Richard Rossiter 1981 1st ed Ringbound Very Fine
By Rossiter, Richard
Price: $75.00


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Boulder, 1981, 1st edition. 84 pp, 8 1/2" x 11" format. Ring fastened pages with card cover. Appears unused, Very Fine condiiton. 

The prices reflects not just the scarcity of the book but also the remarkably Fine condition it is in. Ring bound guidebooks told you to just take out the pages you needed for that day's climbs, which made sense when you were climbing. But now, 43 years later, you may wish you hadn't done that to your copy. (We have had only one copy before, and it was well used.)

This may have been the first guidebook to the Boulder area using modern topo drawings. Rossiter later became renowned for his beautifully drawn and accurate topo drawings of climbs, both in Colorado and the Tetons.

If you collect the guidebooks for Boulder Colorado, a copy of this book in unused condition may be the hardest to find. It was Richard's first book, and the first Boulder guidebook to use Topos for the climbs. Earlier books like High Over Boulder used photos, diagrams or text to describe each climb. As many Boulder climbs are several pitches long, this was the easiest way to see what you were getting into when you wanted to do a climb.
