Kayaking guide books

Hey folks! I'm new to the area and looking for some guide books. I typically paddle IV-V and I'm based out of Boulder. Any info (or new boating buddies would be useful) Thanks!

And if you buy one, buy the new testament. Old testament can be helpful though, especially when it comes to shuttle maps.

These 2 websites are like "online guidebooks":


Home - River Brain

American Whitewater has good (but old) beta as well....

they aren't a substitute for WWSR, but personally I like to look at multiple sources of information when planning a new run.

This book is top notch as well. CRC & WWSR are def. all inclusive for the region, River gypsies guide is all about the primo classics all over the country. Good throne reading....
