I was just wondering if any one knew of a newer guide book for sport climbing of AF canyon(newer then stuart ruckmans 1998) Oh yeah and while I'm at it does any one know the names and grades of the new routes that were set up on the way to the book of condolances area its about .5 miles up the canyon where the stream crosses under the road its a little slabby and there are 3 routes last time i went there. (just to avoid confusion I know for a fact that it isnt freedom wall)

Yeah, and the guys at MountainWorks will tell you it will be done in about 3 months, no 6 months, no 8 months, no in a year... So far, it has just been vapor. They've been talking about it for a long time, and for a while I chose not to buy the old book. Three months later, I asked them about it again, and...I bought the old one. Now, six months later, it still isn't done.

Talking to the guys at Mountain Works they are just now starting to draw out the topos for this guide that is "coming out soon". Who knows, how many more months it will take to finish it off...

Personally, if you ask my opinion having climbed some of the new and unpublished areas I don't think that they are any near the classics that are in the orginal AF guide book. Although it may give others more options then the usual over crowded spots.

I've found climbs up Mary Ellen's Gulch, Major Even's Gulch on Miller hill and other areas I don't know the names of. I've found some great bouldering stuff in Battle Creek and Grove Creek canyons. Can't wait for the guys at Mountain Works to get the book put together. Let's give them the time they need. I think it'll be worth it.
