Helpful, but perennially out-of-date., May 5, 1998
Reviewer: A reader
Hikers interested in the Sandia Mountains will be disappointed in this book, as it contains only the most rudimentary of trail descriptions. Most of the book is devoted to climbing routes, and the route descriptions are generally helpful, if not particularly detailed. However, new editions of this book appear only about every 8-10 years, and the route information in new editions seems to be about two years old upon publication. No mention is made in the current edition of either sport climbing routes in the area or the growing bouldering scene in the Sandia foothills. It will be interesting to see if there is ever a later edition, as Mike Hill's store went out of business and I'm not sure he even lives in the area now.
