This one: store.waterstoneoutdoors.com/p...

Buy it from Waterstone Outdoors in Fayetteville when you get there. There's a new version coming out this fall, though.

I'm not trying to start a controversy, but has there really been that much development at the New to justify a new guidebook? I'm just curious. Besides a few 14's, and 5.13 headpoint trad lines what could possibly justify this new guidebook? The last guidebook by Williams was amazing, but I can't see why we need another one. If there has in fact been an explosion of new route development I'll be on the first flight back home in the Fall with the new guidebook in hand.

Yes there has been a lot of development out at Summersville Lake and the Meadow from my understanding. Not much in the Gorge proper due to the bolting ban (with the exception of some hard lines out at Beauty)
