    With the reprint necessitated by faulty binding, the authors of Rock Deluxe North took the opportunity to make some content changes to improve the overall quality of the book. In total, 58 pages of the book have been updated. Specifically, errors were identified on the erratum and, following information received in response to the alphabetical listing of ascensionists in the first print run, a significant number of changes have been made.
