Amazing job Ray! It kills me to look at it and be stuck here in town.

Awesome Job Ray!

Close competition for a "Best guidebook" award.

Being new to the Red I can't speak to accuracy, but the attention to detail that enhances usability is really amazing. Great pictures, helpful maps and an excellent binding job make this very worthy of praise.

What an awesome turn around. I lived in Northern Utah for the past year where I was excited to buy the 'new' guidebook from the author. This thing tops the heap of crappy investments. :evil: Bad photos, incorrect descriptions, and directions that are vague, bad or outright wrong make it clear that little care was taken in producing this waste of tree pulp.

Guides like the one Ray has created can enhance the climber’s experience by helping us find what we come for. A climbing route, like any route, is both a path and a journey. A good guidebook, like any guide, will facilitate the traveler in finding the right path to reach their goal. However, good guides neither deliver the destination (I doubt Ray will heave many of us to the anchors) nor will they make reaching that destination more difficult (as poorly written guidebooks tend to do).

Three cheers for Ray on a superlative achievement that will enhance my experience and that of many others.

They are now available in the Red. I picked up my copies this morning and saw Miguels were in too.

Dear ynot the next time I see you at Miguel's please show me how you pronounce "shiznickity"
I try to be a good man but all that comes
of trying is I feel more guilty.

Why doesn't the mailman work on Labor Day? Now I'll have to climb at the Red this weekend too so I can buy a copy at Miguals. Nuts! :D

Hey Scaife-- why'd you capitalize Trad, but not sport? Are you trying to stir the shit pot or what?
