Hey everyone...so after a longer delay than I ever anticipated; I have finally finished the bouldering guidebook for the Adirondack Park here in Upstate New York and I am now accepting pre orders on my personal climbing blog.

I am hopeful that people will enjoy these areas as much as I have for the past decade and that the guidebook is a useful resource for anyone who wishes to pay a visit!

Happy climbing and I hope to see you out there...

Right on, Justin!

Two questions:

Are you planning on selling them at local outfitters? I guess I'm specifically wondering about OGE since I'm in Burlington.

Also, is there a benefit to buying them directly from you? (More profit to you is a perfectly acceptable answer and I'm happy to pay for shipping if it means you get to see more of the proceeds go your way.)

Thanks for all the work. I'm already psyched to read it and I wouldn't even consider myself a boulderer, just a huge fan of Adirondack climbing.

Hey man thanks for the reply!

The guidebooks are only going to be available through my climbing blog and at a local climbing gym for the first three months of sales (part of a deal that I have worked out with the gym). After that, I will begin conversations with various outdoor retailers and shops based on how the initial sales go...

And yes, buying directly from me yields the most return on my time, effort, and monies invested in the project.

Thanks again!

Awesome. Thanks for the tip. Is that gym RockSport or The Crux?

Either way I'll be putting in an order soon.

Thanks everyone! The local climbing gym that will have the guidebook in stock is actually called The Edge and is in Halfmoon, NY. Books should be available there by next week.

This weekend looks absolutely prime and I will be going up to Nine Corner Lake in Caroga Lake, NY to boulder with some friends on Saturday. Shoot me a message if you wanted to meet up there to grab a guidebook and sample some problems at the largest developed bouldering area in the Adirondack Park.

Happy Climbing!
