New and updated guidebook. The link provides printing options and more information. The forums on the CCC have a discussion on the new guidebook, author included.

An amazing job, thanks so much Jeff!

Dave Hill crankin' on the cover. I'll have to give him some crap next time I see 'im. Wink


Bout time someone took Pilot's lack of a decent topo into their own hands. Glad to see it was Jeff - super nice guy to boot. I see a lot of the route grades have been fixed as well - Papa Bear, Devil in the White House appropriately downgraded, and Turkey Shoot finally got that R it very much warrants (though it should really be an R/X - that second bolt is groundfall runout).

This guide makes the Pilot Mtn. NC website area here nothing more than a climbing version of myspace for the owner to make ad revenue from. Anyone interested in climbing Pilot Mtn. NC should definitely get Jeff's booklet, and forget this website. By making it free for downloading, anyone can have the best info there is on Pilot Mtn. Kelley was reportedly never at Pilot Mtn. Jeff, on the other hand, is the current manager of the anchors there: if he says it, you can depend on it for sure.

Thanks for your work Jeff!

Not as good as having you there, but.... We need to talk about you arranging your schedule "just" to suite mine ;-)

. . . which kind of makes me wonder how he was able to shoot the photo on p. 63 of his guide.
