New Frenchman Coulee (Vantage) guidebook? Anyone hear anything about when there will be a new edition?

The most recent Marlene Ford and Jim Yoder guidebook is from 2008.

The Marc Dilley Select guide (pdf) is from a few years after.

Last time I was there a few months ago it looked like there were several new climbs on and around Satan's Pillar.

A few years ago I heard that the next edition of the guidebook is at least a few years away.

Has anyone heard anything about when we could see a new edition?

New book out by this Fall.. Over 100+ new routes listed.. We put a lot of time & money into that place last year, many new routes at Zig-Zag and near.. Jim Yoder and Brenden Sullivan are authoring. Full color, new format.

AWESOME!!!

Thanks for filling us in!

And, above all, thanks for all the time, money, and and work you guys have put into the place!

I can't wait to get my hands on it once it is released.

I wonder if Jim Yoder will work on a new edition of the Tieton River Canyon Guidebook next?...?

Is the Frenchman Coulee / Vantage book available yet? And, where can one get it?

Less than 5 weeks of fall left....

Is there an updated ETA yet?

I'm itching to get my hands on it!

Any news if the new guide book was released. Planning a march trip.

I've heard from a reasonably reliable source that you shouldn't hold your breath.
