Hello Chris,
Here are a few ideas for your new guidebook:

Southseas-space-Mescalito: Way more classic than South Seas to PO. Definatly should be in the book

Jesus built my hotrod: Better route than Wet Denim, quite steep.

Roulette: Good route, glad to see that you're thinking about that one in.

BUBS: ask Amon or his parter's for beta.

Magic Mushroom: Better than the shield, need I say more?

The Big Chill: Why not?

You should also include big wall free climbing stuff, like Crosstown Traffic, Quantum Mechanics, etc.

Thank you for the suggestions!

Jesus Built My Hotrod, Roulette and The Shroom will definitely be in there. I havn't done the Space pitches. do you have a detailed topo you can give me? I don't know if i will include the new hard free routes in the book but i will definitely make the topos available for free in the Big Wall Obscurities download... when i get a chance. Thanks again for the suggestions. keep em coming!

any news on zion? i thought i had heard that supertopo was working on a book for zion, is that still in the works? or was it ever?

also, i noticed the new rock and ice has some zion supertopos, is that issue on shelves yet?

Chris,
I think you should start a supertopo for popular bouldering spots. I hate getting lost halfway through a boulder problem and end up spending the night. Your Supertopo could include:

approach
descent
description of the route
overview
photos
move-by-move descriptions
FA's
flashes
History of the problem
Length
Rating
Average time to climb the problem.
How to train for this particular problem
etc...
Basically, take away every single technical aspect of the problem.

This would really help a lot. Bouldering is a very scary undertaking. If I had a SUPERtopo to help, maybe I could feel more comfortable.

Thanks
OB

How about Bermuda Dunes, Pacemaker, Sunkist and Jolly Roger. Or some obscure routes like Verano Magico and Mediterraneo. Good ol' Southwest Face.
