Really? I don't think I could possibly disagree with this statement anymore than I already do.
Granted, sometimes the best beta is to be had in the comments, bu saying MP does NOT have good alpine beta is ridiculous.
As far as guide books go, Richard Rossiter is releasing a new RMNP alpine guide that will supposedly be a comprehensive guide to ice, mixed and alpine for the whole park (except Lumpy). This book will be released by Sharp End some time this late spring or early summer. The Levin guide to Eldo that Sharp End published is top notch, so I can only hope the new Rossiter guide will be as quality.
