I could really use your help getting the new How To Big Wall Climb Book in your local climbing store. If you could mention to your local buyer/owner that the book is available that would be sweet. As always, if the store orders you get a free book!

Here are the stores that have ordered so far

American Alpine Institute
Arizona Hiking Shack
Chessler Books
Desert Rock Sports
El Portal Market
Flagstaff Climbing
Mammoth Mountaineering
Marmot Bellevue
Mountain Gear
Neptune Mountaineering
Nomad Ventures
Outback Adventures
Planet Granite
Real Cheap Sports
Red Point Climbing
Redding Sports LTD
Rock and Snow
Stone Gardens
Teton Mountaineering
The Mountaineer
Touchstone Climbing Gyms
Utah Mountain Sports
Yosemite Mountain Shop
Wilderness Exchange Denver
Wilsons Eastside Sports
Zion Mountain School

Plus, if stores order this week they get free shipping and free shop copy

Well, my local shop is already on the list, Desert Rock Sports. Not by my doing, but still glad that it will be available locally.

Even got a text message from the owner yesterday that the book was coming in haha. So he is actively promoting it, just as an FYI. Looking forward to reading it!

Have you reached out to Wilderness Exchange (Denver) and Bent Gate (Golden, CO). I'm afraid I won't be able to get to either of these soon but maybe you could give them a ring or shoot em an email? Both are awesome shops that do cater to some of the CO big wall climbers.

Sent them emails and waiting to hear back... a little nudge from a customer might help. Thanks!

Mountain Air Sports, two locations. San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.

Sent in an e-mail asking if they have your Big Wall book.

The hook has been set.

I contacted Next Adventure and The Mountain Shop here in Portland.
I will try to get U.S. Outdoor Store to carry it.
I can try Powells Books too.

I was so glad to see the Arizona Hiking Shack on the list, otherwise I'd make sure they ordered! Yay for the new big wall books!

I emailed and then got reply's from both Bent and Wildyx. Wilderness exchange said they had some titles but not that one. And Bent said they don't carry any :(
