I'll be moving to the area in the near future and am looking for guidebooks on bouldering and sport climbing in/around Los Padres National Forest. I found "Oceans Eleven-Bouldering Around Santa Barbara" but not sure how dated the material is or how new route development is in the area. Any recommendations welcome - thank you!

SB has a pretty good community of motivated climbers.

Ocean's Eleven remains the standard for bouldering in SB. Pick one up if you've find one at a fair price.

This thing is tough to find!

As long as Bob Banks doesn't mind I can email people photos of the pages they want. It is indeed hard to find and will not be reprinted. Not impossible to find though.

So where can I find it?

I've tried looking for a copy of Oceans Eleven but it tough to find. Photos of pages would be appreciated if that is possible!
