!. When will the new "Secrets of the Notch" be released (has it already been?)?

2. A couple years ago there was rumor of a developing Southern NH guide. I know work had been started on it, anybody have any info on this?

3. Updated New England Bouldering guide, Kemple was working on it this fall, any timeline been heard of?

The single most annoying question to anyone producing a guidebook.

It will be done when it is done. Unless the book is at the printer there is rarely a timeline only good intentions by the author.

It may be annoying but in the case of the Adirondack Bouldering guide book the author has released statements with possible release dates multiple times over the years and yet its still not out and we haven't heard anything about it in the last year really. At that point I think its okay to ask for some updates.

I'm pretty sure that guide has been published... like last spring.

Thanks for adding the links for me guys!

Yes, the Adirondack Park Bouldering guidebook that I worked on is available (got it back from the printers March 2016). There are only a couple dozen copies left so if there is still any interest feel free to get a hold of me before they are gone.

Regarding the revised New England guidebook...I have no idea on a release date. I am sure the guys are working this asses off on it as we speak...Adk bouldering took me over 3 years and thousands of hours so I am sure they are pretty busy with their new edition.

If they do not talk to me the Conneticut section will be incomplete.
