Nice job on the book! I like the minimalist route descriptions, keeping in style with the previous guides. The hand drawn maps/topos are appreciated, and do a good job of showing locations of hard to get to climbs. Even though I don't live in AZ anymore it is a great read.

One minor comment/question: the gear listings for the climbs are in inches, but often it looks like 0.5" and 0.75" really mean 0.5 and 0.75 camalot sizes rather than a tips crack.

Thanks Roman, that question is one for David - I just type the numbers he gives me. I will ask him this question next week and get back to you.
As a side-note: we had multiple area developers submitting their own gear beta and there are 24 different areas, so reconciling all of the information was difficult.

Erik I would have included those in the pics I gave you for the book. However I didn't take any of them and didn't want to give away Kelsey's pics (even though I did that for the RRG guide lol) but maybe I should have?

See you Saturday evening.

let there be righteous bumpage in the name of "sedona rocks" and saturday's book release event
... plus a side note in praise of lumberyard red, my fave from the greater beaver st. gang

edit: sure like that chimney exit shot kelsey ... gecko hands, depth of field, bomb bay predicament, even faces!
easy for the viewer to slide right into place, and help search for the solution

Thanks for the great shots Todd!

Bump cuz it is the Choss Season again, the Sandstone Sketchiness:

Embrace the looseness, find your inner groveler, the hidden scrabbling maniac.

Channel your clawing monkey-self and go have some real adventure in Sedona. There is more there than you can wrap your sandy brain around (wait - that's my sandy brain - sorry).

Sometimes good, sometimes bad - Hell, if you want predictable climbing, you probably know where to go.

But remember:

Pull down

not out.
