Thanks, everyone! It has been quite a process for the last three years, and I am glad to have it done!

"What's next?" Susan, the Flagstaff guide, of course!

Sedona has a "scary and loose" reputation that is kind of out-dated.

There certainly are some climbs that are like that, but they are not in the majority. The newer generation of climbs are usually cleaned and are often bolt protected where the rock quality is questionable or there is a run-out.

We want you to do our routes, enjoy them and tell others how great they were!

So, don't be afraid of Sedona climbing - it's nice, you'll like it!

Bump for my brothers.

I received my complimentary copy a few days ago.

Other than the fact that I was given credit for an FA on a route I've never been on (maybe doc slipped me a Mickey and I "forgot"?) this guide is awesome and very well done.

Awesome work Bro's!

Damn! Wish I still lived in the arid zone. I never fully utilized Sedona like some other areas, perhaps due to a lack of beta. I hope you make good sales and I'll buy a copy for sure if I plan on doing a big trip out that way.

Thanks again! Looks like we got a couple of articles coming out. One in Urban Climber and one in Sedona Magazine. We will see how the interest pans out.

Looking forward to a few days in the area, and checking out some of the new stuff.

Figures...

I was just in Sedona a few weeks ago, and the guidebook I bought was pretty damned poor to put it mildly. And it is 10 years old, so a new one was needed badly.

I'm going to head back out there in the fall to take another shot at Queen Victoria...the damn OW shut me down. Will have to pick this up before we head out there!

Congratulations! Looks great.

It's been a long time coming; must be great to finally get the thing in the stores.

I love that shot of John, Kelsey! It would be cool to put that one in the second edition, whenever that may be.

OK, final bump for the book release event, and big thanks to Vertical Relief for their support and hosting of the gathering.

Psyched to get the Sedona stoke on, and that Beaver Street Brewery and their award-winning IPA is three blocks away!
