Send a PM to Oldmansmith at either RC or NEB.. They are saying spring release and it's being slowed up by the forest service giving them a final trail map or something of that sort.. there is a thread on NEB or Mtn project i forget which

Has anyone heard any more about the release of the new Rumney book? Everything I've read has said sometime in Spring of 08...

It would be great if this book was out before the summer.

I sort of did that already, but made it into a much handier book form from it and included info from RC.com (more routes, less info on them) and neclimbs.com. See info here.

I asked about posting it for others to use (it took me a ton of time and would be a shame to waste), but the idea didn't get too warm of a reception, mainly because the real guide is wrapping up and will be out "very soon". That was 3 months ago.

With the proper guide coming and nowhere good to host it, I didn't. I sent it out to a handful of people who asked over PM, but that is too much work to keep up. Anyone have any good info on the real guide? I am not from the area (only went once, who knows if/when I'll get back) and don't want to step on anybody's toes. Perhaps the idea of posting it is worth kicking around again...

I know everyones chaffing at the bit the good news is that it is nearly done.

Didn't want to rush it this fall, We are working on advertising, photo's and info and have made the decision to take the time to proof it, again and again. try to get everything right, produce a guide that is not only accurate but a good product, much like the last one, and release it in the spring!

Hang in there, it's coming

It's been coming out "soon" for a long, long time.

I'm happy with my beat-up old one for now, but it's funny how many new climbs I keep finding each time I go. Although rumor has it that there is a new ban on adding bolts on most of the big lower crags.

Any word on the ramifications of that?

It's not a rumor.. it's a solid fact that their is a moratorium on new lines at a bunch of crags

if you search around you can fill in your book with alot of the new routes between here and Mtn project. Or know who to talk to at the rock :)

my post above is directly from the guys putting it out so that's the best we can do for info. It takes time to put out a quality book.. not some shitty ass Falcon guide that is lame.

The lower crags are practically grid bolted anyway, covering basically all the really aesthetic lines. Besides, if I were looking for new stuff at Rumney, I'd be staying away from those purely to avoid the weekend crowds. There's still new, super hard lins to be found in the upper Rumney areas for those with the skills to pull it. The moratorium doesn't and won't have any real negative affect on the overall quality of Rumney climbing.

Shoo i would hardly call them grid bolted. Perhaps you don't know what that actually means. Almost all the lines at rumney are very distinct and pretty well thought out. It's been a pretty model example of HOW to do a sport area and the new rules prove that even more.

beating the crowds down low doesn't take alot of effort.. just can't be picky if you just want to warm up quick on the way up.. snag an open line or 2 and run run run ! then go back after like 3pm and you have the whole place to yourself if there is something you wanted to get on.

i don't see how it would have a negative effect. all the routes are in and not very much has been added to those crags in a long time so they just made it official.

i wanna go clip bolts now :( stupid snow

It's the internets. Assume exaggeration.

And yes, that is exactly what I do.
