The climbing of far northern CA is so very, very nice.
As to the Falcon guide:
I am the person responsible for it getting pulled from publication. It was full of errors, traced maps from Eric Chemello's originals, loosly vieled text of mine, along with other elements of blatant disrespect.
I went to the Outdoor Retail Tradeshow in Salt Lake (in a wheelchair) and confronted the publisher. I threatened to go to the industry press if the book was not pulled that day. After a bit of heated debate, complete with a threat to sue, they yanked it.
Moral: don't piss Paul and Eric off!
Hey, to all the scattered Humboldt climbers, How the hell are y'all, and where the hell are you?
Castle Crags, is one of California's last great frontiers and it's RAD! Check out my site www.alpineaddict.com for some beta on what's going on there. It doesn't end there, as someone else mentioned there is a ton of limestone which is being developed in the area. Great bouldering and sport climbing on Mt Shasta is ripe for the picking. also numerous Basalt plugs only minutes from town and South facing walls at Castle Crags keep us climbing all year round.
I moved up here for the climbing and so far the only thing that disappoints me is the lack of climbers.
Hope to see you all up here this season.
