I've added a couple dozen new routes- believe it or not!- and some minor tweaking, that I think improve the guide even further.
If you have some good action climbing shots from your days out in the Canyon, please send them to Fred on the Sharp End Facebook page.
Thanks, and climb safe out there!

Steve; got a couple of shots Dave V. took of me on the Edge last Sept. Would love to see myself immortalized in your outstanding book. That is, if they want to put some old fart in there. Roger from Ouray

Steve,

Your Eldo book is far and away the best guidebook I own (out of about 15). However, after three years of heavy use, I have discovered a mistake or two (routes listed as 5.8 in one place and 5.8+ elsewhere, that kind of thing). I'm looking forward to seeing the new one!

Now, if you will excuse me, I'm about to head up the West Ridge, where I will use the old one. I'd try to get some photos for you, but I doubt you'd be much impressed by my grovelling style.

Hey Steve-
Your current eldo guidebook is awesome! One small complaint I have is the quality of the binding. After using it lightly for a couple of years, it's starting to fall apart. Have you and sharp end ever considered beefing up the binding? I think it would be well worth it-
Thanks-
Craig

Hey Steve, I'll be sure to bring my camera next Tuesday if you want to request any specific action shots! Can't wait!

The first edition is by far and away the best guidebook I've ever used, anywhere. Can't wait for the new one. kiff

Sheesh! What a perfectionist!

Steve, your guidebook is second to none. It is not only a helpful tool for finding routes, it is an honestly engaging read! The guest articles and historical accounts are fantastic and a welcome addition to climbing guidebook formats.

I'll sift through my photos, but we aren't climbing anything cutting edge or hard.

Hi Steve,
Any update on a date for the next publishing? I am trying to stall buying a replacement for my first copy.

Thanks!

I don't have a hard date for the 2nd edition. Hopefully soon (this fall).
