In June, he said he'd like to have it out for his slide shows, but that it would be out "for sure" by 2015.

Kris is a man of many and varied talents, he is way to modest to brag.
So I will brag for him, He was the horn man for the New York Ballet back in his younger days. And he was 3rd trumpet for the NY symphony also...

When he moved out here in like 1981.... he liked what he found.

I returned to climbing after a 7 year layoff in 1988, and met Kris at Stoney... I told him about my desire to climb Castle Rock Spire...

Adam.... cool. The MP page is missing some of the important stuff, maybe when Dwight gets his book out, we can get it updated. And I have some shots of Carson Kodas that are mind blowing. Maybe time to dig out the scanner and go crazy.

Bump for the show....

TUESDAY 9/9/2014 ..... 7:30. SCMA meeting, fun to follow.

Are you implying that Dwight Kroll is working on a book for the Courtright area? If its of the quality of his other work, I am pretty excited.

I wish I could see Kris' show, I am sure it will be very cool.

J. Yes.... he gave out a "last call" a few weeks back, if ya have anything.

I am excited also, only Shuteye has had more development in the last few decades.

Only got to put one up when we were there last, but the place has decades of potential.
