There was a discussion a little while ago about a few particular old guidebooks on mountainproject.com. The result was a few digital copies of some books, and I thought folks here might be interested too.

Specifically, the books referenced are:
Manchester Rock Climbs in the Greater Manchester, NH Area By Paul Boissoneault and Dave & Marie Saball
1995's Comprehensive Guide to Pawtuckaway Rock Climbs By Paul Boissoneault and Dave & Marie Saball
Cannon Cliff By John Porter and Howard Peterson
Schist Another Hangout By Den Danna (this is the Rumney book, for those who need to brush up on their geology!)

You can find them all right over here: http://www.mediafire.com/Basilisk613


As a general notice, please keep in mind that these are all at least 10 years old. Much of the information is out of date, and in some cases (especially Cannon Cliffs), routes don't even exist anymore. A prime example is that as I was scouting a Manchester area this weekend I had the cops called on me. Turns out the parking area described in the book is now a driveway, and the owner was not pleased.

Hope you enjoy!

Sweeet.. As a Rumney super fan the old guidebook is a fun look at the origins.

I suspect this has been buried because no one looks in Regional, but whatev.

Christopher from Moutainproject.com uploaded the Swain guide to Pawtucks, as well as a better version of the original Pawtcuks that's in there
