Current Southern Illinois Guidebook?

Hi - I'm thinking of making a trip down to SoIll for some climbing this year and am trying to find out what the most current guidebook is and where I can find it for ordering online.

I came across soillbouldering.com, but the site is down (permanently?)

I also found http://www.verticalheartland.com/E-Store.html - is this a fairly up-to-date/good guide?

I was mostly thinking of bouldering, but would consider sport climbing as well.

Thanks in advance for any info you can give me..

"Vertical Heartland" is the most current guidebook and is fairly comprehensive. But: a) Draper's Bluff is closed until further notice; b) there are a number of recently bolted routes at Jackson Falls, so you might have to ask a regular if you come across something confusing.

For bouldering, get "Sandstone Warrior" by Matt Bliss.

I would bet the website is permanently defunct.

Thanks for the help

Vertical Heartland just arrived and now I've ordered Sandstone Warrior.
