Hey folks,

I finished the first edition of my guide-book. I'm experimenting with distribution right now so I put it on EBay at a fixed price and $4 S&H.

A bit about it:
It covers the entirity of Siskiyou County, including Cecilville, Lover's Leap Limestone, and local crags. Additionally it covers Castle Crags.

I have been working on it for about 2.5 years. It is full color. Aerial photos of Castle Crags (no small expense). I've interviewed several retired climbers (into their 80s, and their widows). Several routes / areas never before published. Lot's of climbing history of the Shasta Area. Especially those hard men you've never heard about. Photos from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and today.

I'm listing 20 on Ebay, but I have ONLY 800 left in my garage (hahaha!). Not sure if it will work, if it doesn't you can PM me. Sample pics below.

Thanks guys,
doktor_g

Mark - There's about 250 - 275 routes total spread over the areas pictured.

Going to the post office tomorrow if anyone else is interested.
Sorry about the less than subtle bump.

that's my home town...that guide looks killer!

I found it on Amazon but Amazon says: "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." Work blocks eBay : (


Best of luck, I will try later for sure.

Awesome! For many years, I've heard tons of good things about the climbing up there. Can't wait to have 30 bucks to spend... In the meantime... Big bump! Hope you sell the first 25 and then some. You might try emailing Carolyn and Planet Granite to see if they want to stock some in their shops.

Right on Grover. I met you several months ago up at 8 mile boulders.

Will shops up there have it? If not, I'll probably order one.

Plenty of crags I haven't checked out yet.

@Paul: thanks bro. Looking forward to returning the favor...
@Dr Sprock: The park owns zero cliffs, IIRC. All the climbing is either private or National Wilderness. The park closures for budgetary reasons only make the CDT walk a little farther
@Split: I remember you and your gal. Glad you reached out as I'd lost your contact info.
Looking forward to seeing you again. Yup the 5th Season will carry it. Amazon soon.

Nice Job on the new guidebook, got mine yesterday.

The pics/topos are excellent, enjoyed the historical section and lots of routes/beta
that had not been previously published.
So much great rock in The State of Jefferson.

Grover have you any Trinity Alps beta to share? Or will they always be a word of mouth only deal?

Thanks doktor g

Tad
