Anyone have the old Rockfax Bishop pdf they'd be willing to send my way? Can't find it on their site anymore. Thanks!

There is no Rockfax guidebook for any sort of climbing around Bishop California.

Rockfax does English-language guidebooks for Europe.

Maybe once they had an informal bouldering topo for Bishop California. Or maybe you're thinking of some other "Bishop" .
. . (or some other "northern California"?)

Mostly right, but while Mick(Rockfax founder) was living on the Eastside he produced a couple rounds of guides to the area. 

No help on the pdf’s but Charlie Barrett’s new comprehensive guide building on Mick’s work is available, IME had a bunch of copies a few weeks back

Must be a figment of my imagination, much like the nights at Mick's place when he lived there.

Sorry Ken...Mick had a series of mini guides available for free and/or purchase in the wayback   Time Machine.    @dankohl  I asked Mick if he still has those available but seeing he is no longer associated with rockfax I'm not sure if that's something he's able to share even if he does. He might pop into this discussion.

Mick Ryan and Wills Young produced an awesome guide he did which is published by  wolverine but I don't think that's what you're asking for.
