If your favorite thing at the Rock City store is the pizza, your priorities are skewed.


Damn straight!! We had people from Northern and Central Idaho saying that it was the best beer selection in the state. The pizza is real good though.

And hike out and do White Lightning. You won't regret it.

Rock Climbing Photo: Why I do it...
I was climbing at the Castles yesterday and only saw 3 other people there. The weather was great (low 70's).
More advice? Stay away from Castle Rock because it gets 90% of the traffic. We climbed many routes on True Grit. It was a great day!
Anyone know if Dave Bingham has written the second edition of the Castles Guide book?

I heard a rumor that Dave is working on a new edition color guide book for the area. Greg G

He put out a couple of interim guides when the area was fresh. Then, first edition, 2004, has a black cover with yellow, photo of a guy on Twinkie. Second edition has red print and is a shot of G Money on Southern Rock Opera, 2008.

Brad has an online guide for a few of the zones. Pretty current info there.

Rumor has Dave working on a new edition.

Wouldn't it be great to have a link to Brad's guide?
Wow that would be awesome.
