After over a year's effort I've posted the Mount Nemo guidebook on my website.

http://www.verticalaim.com

You can also find other guidebooks in various levels of completeness for other areas including:

Nemo, Rattlesnake point, Cape Croker, McRae Lake and a few ice climbing areas around Bancroft.

Please provide feedback to improve and update the information on these guides for everyone.

Enjoy!

-Joe

Using Safari, yes. Firefox, no.

For some reason Firefox on Mac does not support embedded PDF files.

Not sure why, but the site was built off my Mac, so Safari should work like a charm.

Weird. Firefox complains about not having the plugin, and there is none to install, Safari just crashes and I even tried Chrome which just doesn't show anything...

I'm sorry to see you are having so many issues accessing the web-site. I did not do anything fancy - it is a popular Joomla template with embedded PDF files.

The site works for me using Chrome, IE, Safari, Safari iPhone... the only thing that I know doesn't work is Firefox due to a lack of PDF embedded plugin.

Hey Joe,

Got it working, I found the link to download the PDF and print it out, and that worked fine. My girlfriend and I took out first trip to Mount Nemo yesterday, and while that place is incredible confusing for any first time visitors (there were no other climbers around to ask) your guide book was a huge help and the GPS co-ordinates were just awesome.

Thanks for all the hard work you put into this project.

Cheers,

Trevor

Awesome! Very nice indeed ...
THANKS!

I think Mt. Nemo is one of the most underrated climbing areas around.

I agree, Mount Nemo is not the easiest place to figure out... Especially since you start at the top. I'm glad the guidebook helped you out!

I've updated the Mount Nemo section, it should work fine with OSX + Firefox now. Changed to embedded PDFs to JPGs...

I've made some significant changes both to the online guidebook and printable version. Version 3.01 April 5, 2010.

Some of the changes were made possible with feedback from the climbing community. Feel free to pass along any updates as you use the guidebook.

Would it be possible to get the information about Rattlesnake Point in PDF form? I do not own an IPhone and can't find a guidebook anywhere. I would not mind paying money for this.

I think that there are still some of the old guidebooks still avalible for purchase at the Toronto MEC.

This site does not work on my browser or my phone. Can you just make a PDF?
