Hello, 

What is a recommended guidebook for Ten sleep? I have seen a couple online but can't seem to see feedback or examples and read that an old one is no longer available online. I can always default to MP but I'd rather have a book. any assistance would be appreciated

I believe you have two choices currently, there is the ten sleep bible which is insanely expensive, or you can pick up the $25 punk rock dirtbag guidebook from a store in ten sleep itself.  I'd go with the second option personally, all of the info you need at a reasonable price.

Get the Punk Rock guidebook

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but the story I heard is that the original author of the Ten Sleep Bible never intended for it to be so expensive, but the publisher went crazy with the 3-D effects, leather binding, etc. A lawsuit followed. The author ended up gifting the rights to his copyright materials to the Bighorn Climbing Coalition so they could print their own version. The Punk Rock guidebook has all of the same content as the Bible without the fancy effects, glossy pages, and leather binding. And all of the profits go back to the Ten Sleep climbing community.
