Guide Book List

Below is a list of climbing guide books owned by the club, that members can borrow. 

Taking Care of Club Books

When using club books please do your best to take care of them. Although we do understand that you are taking them climbing and will not stay pristine, please treat them with respect. It is good if you can, for example, use guide book rain covers when it is wet.

Collecting and Returning Club Books

Books can be borrowed from the SCC library at Boulder Shack. Please logout any books when you borrow them and return within 2 weeks so other members can use them too! The key to the library is kept behind the desk at Boulder Shack.
