Check out "Devils Tower Climbing" by Rachael Lynn and Zach Orenczak (published by Extreme Angles Publishing). It is really well done, all color and what I hope to be wear-resistant type pages. I'd compare it to the new Indian Creek guide in style and quality. Healyje wrote: Nathan, how about just trusting your eyes or starting to learn to? Maybe skip the guide, start walking around the tower, spot something that looks interesting, and just try to climb it. Whatever. It's cool that you want to not use the guide. that wasn't my question. It was a straightforward question. What guides are good?

Reviews about Devil's Tower Climbing (7):
As a guide, this book is great, it has good explanations of the routes and good pictures, so I could easily figure out where the routes start.

The non-route related pictures are a little zany and some of them are not my style (the cover is a good example of what I'm talking about), but I can see how others might find them amusing.

The book offered some info/history about climbing at Devils Tower, and pictures of climbers from the 60's and 70's that I found interesting.

By using the book ahead of time, I was able to act confident and quickly trick the Rangers into thinking I knew Devils Tower. So after a few questions, thy wished me a good climb and left me alone.
Al little different climbing guide, but good information.
This is a super fun guidebook! It's got all kinds of zany exploits of the original climbers from the 70s, as well as full descriptions of each route. It seems like the tower would be climbed out, with routes up to the top up every possible way. Since I haven't been there yet, I'm not sure if the guidebook is entirely complete or is missing some routes. However, it seems pretty complete. There are 191 routes described in its almost 200 pages. It's full color, too.
It adds flair and humor to the guide book and list routes throughout the Devil's Tower park. It lists the gear required and/or recommended and the difficulty or ratings of each route. This book is the one to have if only wanting one guidebook for Devil's Tower.
This book rocks. The route descriptions are generally short which is best, seems like the fewer words reduces confusion! There are plenty of little anecdotes to keep entertained as well. Enjoy!!!
Generally less good than the other two books (yellow from the park, green from Richard Guilmette and Renee Carrier) more expensive and full of pictures and references that are interesting but not much more informative.

The full featured pictures are not that crisp and the black and white, hand drawn topos are similar to the other books. There are some errors too that contribute to the general consensus that this not the best guidebook around. Durrance, for example, is not really in need of big pro as the author suggests due to the ability to find other pro along the way. The rappels can be wrong and some distances you need to double check.

The pros are seeing Frank and some other people of the old time climbers in their youth again! Seeing the pancake bike is a fun little piece and there are other sections that are fun. The cards to not have to carry up the book is fun too if you want to rid yourself of packs and free climb shirtless.
A little history, a little oddity, and a lot of climbing information. Its very much put together with entertainment value in mind as well as sharing useful climbing information on the Tower. There is personal commentary, stories, and a few opinions to boot. Not what you would normally see in a climbing guide but also the really important stuff is very solid and detailed. Routes, Gear, and beta maps are all sound in this guide.
Don't buy this book! It is full of errors and funded as an ego project to promote a fully funded Joker! Just buy the NPS guide book which is accurate at a third the price.
