Haven't heard about the book, but hopefully soon. Rumors have been abound for long enough already.

Side note: When are you getting back to the states? I just moved back to MA after I finished school and need to find some partners besides my little sis...

Ward posted today in NEClimbs that he is getting the final draft in the mail this week, whatever that means. Sounds like it is very near. M Sprague

I saw a draft of the new guide yesterday. There are some notable grade changes (mostly upgrades). Below are the routes the old grade, and the new grade:

Tsunami: 12c --> 12c/d
Whip Tide: 12c --> 12b/c
Big Kahuna: 12d --> 12d/13a
Dark Star: 13d --> 13c
Strict Scrutiny: 14a --> 13d

There may be other grade changes, but I didn't have time to look at some of the other cliffs.

Slightly off topic, but I read somewhere that the guy that put together the new Red Rocks guidebook (redrocksguidebook.com/) is bringing the same high quality work to New Hampshire. True? Anyone know when it may be out?

Thanks.

J. Handren is redoing his old rock fax guide to White hoarse and Cathedral. Verified. For an unsubstantiated rumor, I've heard twice now that Websters quide to the Eastern Whites is being redone. Any word on that? E thatcher

Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballin' down through the sky,
Gleam in it's eye,
Bright as a rose!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? yes it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when, but it's soon -
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on - deliver
To me!

Will it be? yes it will.
Maybe just by holding still
It'll be there!
Come on something, come on in, don't be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!

The air is humming,
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight...........

Couloirman, The folks at Plymouth Ski and Sport told me it was pushed back another 2 months. As for the Webster book being redone, that's just a rumor thats been floating around, I've heard it twice now, but haven't here anything verifiable. The Jerry Hendren book however is being redone right now, in the same style that he did his new Red Rocks book. Pretty excited for that one, but he just started redoing it at the beginning of the summer, so that'll be a bit of a wait. E thatcher

Yeah...I'll second the Webster guide thing as a rumor...I was lucky enough to talk with him in person about his guidebook a few months back, and a new edition definitely did not seem foremost in his mind. David Aguasca!

Lee has made some really nice Topo's for Rumney that would serve just as well for a guidebook for folks that don't have one. Just look in his profile under pictures.

and like he said. when it comes out it'll be well known

Only get to rumney a couple times a year, but with these I see no need to ever get a rumney guide book. Great job and I appreciate the hard work. Of course when climbing is involved in the research it can never be too bad. Thanks. nhclimber
