Nice to have that transcribed so I could actually read it. There's probably a very interesting article there.

looking sketchy there...

There is cool ascent info (Attempts, FAs, second, third, etc.), but very little else in that "guide." In fact, it is a big stretch to call it a guide at all, but rather the title "Mountain Records of the Sierra Nevada" is pretty telling (and apt). Great history though of stuff that normally gets lost and long forgotten.

Approx. 200 of these were produced, each individaully numbered; highest number seen is 186. I have copy #14.

The serialized High Sierra Guide (in Sierra Club Bulletins 1937 Vol. XXII, No.1; 1938, XXIII, No.2; 1939, Vol XXIV, No.3; 1940, Vol.XXV, No.1; 1941, Vol.XXVI, No.1; and 1942, Vol.XXVII, No.4) are very cool, and has been mentioned, the High Sierra Guide installments were separately published as booklet reprints. The reprints are kinda tough to find, the Sierra Club Bullitins much easier.
