So I just got my new Mt. Shasta Guide in the mail a few days ago and I couldn't put the freakin' thing down! My legs went numb sitting on the crapper for so long! I've read it almost cover to cover, at first drooling over the new climbing areas that are not that far away and then getting sucked into Grover's personality-filled descriptions, amusing anecdotes, fascinating histories and sick topos...

If you're anywhere near Northern California, you need to get this guide, even if you just sit on the toilet and read it and never climb a damn thing in it!

Great job on the guide Grover! I'm jealous and wish that this had come out earlier so I could steal ideas from it for my guide. Haha... Let's go do Runaway Train! Or Plum Line.

Peace,
Paul

CORRECTIONS:
I appreciate all the support and feedback that I’ve been getting: Good and bad. Below, I have listed corrections that I am making for the second edition. The vast majority are historical corrections of first ascents. There are a handful of minor corrections on the grades, two accidentally excluded routes were added (Dome Trail), and two new-ish routes were added. The grade changes or otherwise important changes are bolded. Thanks again everyone. I'm sure there will be more corrections. I am going to keep the edit up-to-date so the author who comes after me can get it more correct without the agony of research and crucifixion. DrG

@Patrick Sawyer. I'd like to ship one to Ireland for bragging rights!!!! I've attempted to cover the entire Castle Crags complex in the guide. Maybe you'll see a pic that jostles your memory and I can get it into the next guide. That and some awesome pics from the 1970s... Bell-bottoms? Available via Amazon under my name or link above (thanks lambone)
PM me...G

@Paul Bernard. Anytime bro. I can't wait to go climbing with your guide. The previews are so awesome!!!! When is it coming out? Call or email and I'll go if you lead the hard stuff!

Bump because this is the most personality-infused guidebook I've ever encountered. The anecdotes and route descriptions are hilarious. Nice work, Grover; this is a great resource!
