It will be quite some time before anyone sees a book.
As to the vibe here in Bish. Yes, there is a ton of arrogance here. While Ty is outwardly a mostly nice guy the people he surrounds himself with can exhibit an astounding degree of hypocrisy when it comes to anyone putting up routes outside of their little club. Very high school, very sad....
actually ran into tai and mary today, tai with his guide. pretty sweet to see that many years of hard work actually come to fruition. congrats to tai. book should be available to the rest of us sometime in october.
Looks like " no time soon" is sooner than you think. :). Yup- it's coming very soon. Marty's Owens guide will be out before the end of the year too.
Regardless of whatever groupies my have gotten Bitter Betty's panties in a wad ^ Ty is a nice person and one of the hardest working people I know. The amount of work that went into route development, trail work and creating a guide for Pine Creek is unimaginable. The place is a monster on all levels. Congrats to him on finishing the book.
I got a look at an advance copy of Tai DeVore's new Pine Creek guide when I was up visiting with Just the Maid and Aeriq over the past couple of days. Gorgeous book! What a great job Tai and friends did, and what a great resource! Besides all the new route development in the area, the amount of work that went into approach trails is phenomenal. Despite cold temps, there was just enough heat and sun for me and JTM to get in a couple of days climbing up there on new routes!
I was asking the same question in Wilson’s 2 days ago. Sounds like the books are somewhere between the docks in Long Beach and the Eastside. No one knows exactly. They said they should hang a sign up above the counter saying “They are NOT in yet!”, and add another option to their phone system, “For information on the Pine Creek guidebook, press 1”.
Xmas is on it’s way. Any day now.
