This digital guidebook presents a selection of 27 multi-pitch routes taken from the book Rock around the World. Routes are drawn on zoomable photos. The content of the guidebook is detailed in the OmegaRoc app.

Red Rocks: 19 routes Thanks to the very sculpted sandstone of Red rocks, it is possible to climb routes on very steep cliffs at quite moderate grade. The protections are good and quite easy to place.
Trad 6a grade is required

Zion: 8 routes In Zion, the routes are often more demanding both in terms of difficulty and climbing style. 
Trad 6b grade is required and a good crack climbing experience
