Ron, that topo drawn on paper looks more like a map out of a corn maze than a route. LOL

Thanks for the recent pics guys,
but can we get some action shots please?

Kenny, yea you can place thin pro between bolts. There is one more bolt higher up (3 total). Clip it and make a friction move to the prominent jug that sticks out in the skyline of your last pic. Yard the jug, wipe your brow, and climb to the anchors.

Dan - sure I'd be happy to provide the info in whatever format you want, I just need to know how you'd like it presented. I've not done hand drawn stuff, but I understand from a printing cost perspective if you'd prefer black and white over color. Conversely, if you want photo topos, I can provide raw files so you and your designer can decide how best to display them. We should chat about it in person sometime soon. Maybe I can take a day off before this weather moves in and meet you guys up at the fords.

Chim-Chim, what would really be cool if you could incorporate first-hand stories from the early explorers of the region. I mean, not only the history of first ascends, but also some "just stories" that would make make the reader emotionally engaged. Add some color to it. All the guides I read are pretty dry. There is some background history included, for sure, but they often lack the fire. But maybe I am a sucker for a good story ;)
