Guide update

February 12th, 2011

Just wanted to give you a quick update. The revision is in progress. Information is still coming in and I’m still spending a lot of time deciding exactly what needs to be updated. You might think that it’s just a matter of changing the ratings (one climber suggested, “add 1 to every rating”) but there’s a lot more than. Since the previous edition was finished (1999) both the Internet and indoor climbing have become far more popular. Both will have an influence on the guidebook.

Have you read the Introduction to the current guidebook? If not, this is a good time to do so. You’ll get a good idea of my philosophy and approach.

If you see a copy of Stewart Green’s Rock Climbing: Colorado guide (in color), that’s the format for my new guide. The color photos on glossy paper will really help show some details that were lost in the printing of the current guide. Virtually all of the photographs will be new; I’m putting together my shot lists right now so I can hit the crags when the snow melts.

It’s not too early to submit action photos, so check out the contributor guidelines.
