Great book, terrible ebook. The online version had all the images removed. In other words, it is a guidebook with no maps, photos or diagrams! Completely worthless! And you cannot print pages to take with you on treks. By trying to prevent pages or images of this book from being distributed without purchase, they have rendered this ebook useless to those of us who have purchased it. I requested a refund and received it from google.

Great guide for the Sierra and something well work buying for every climber, peakbagger, or backpacker.
I own the paper and ebook copy. While it's great being able to search and get at it
anywhere I have internet access be aware the version available through Google has been restricted to disallow printing.
