Does anyone have a copy of this book that I could buy or borrow?

I'm looking at you Devil's lake area climbers.

I saw a few references in a more current guide book and it looks like a good read.

Cheers,

Pretty sure I made a pdf. Remind me after Memorial Day and I'll look for it.

I bought a copy at Neptune Mountineering in CO. Give them a ring. I gave that copy to John Dobbe maybe, proprietor of Focus Snow+Skate.

The publisher is in Madison. I just bought a copy two days ago for $15 that I have to go pick up. Just google it.

Doug, do you actually have a hard copy of that 1971 guide?

Wish they'd reopen this place...is Access Fund doing anything?

I do! Just realized I should ask Roger to autograph it for me!

The Access Fund and the Wisconsin Climbers Association are both actively working on this. But I couldn't tell you whether to be hopeful or not. In the meantime you should go by and have a look at the place.
