Hey Eric & David,

How is the guide book coming along? I am ready to use it. Spring fever has hit.

We are getting close! It has turned into two books, BTW. One for the Greater Flagstaff area and one for Sedona. It's looking like June or July now...
Thanks for asking - we're on it!

They are being self-published on Amazon, much like the way the new Jacks Canyon book was.

I think it will have a brief outline of the area and a few route topos.

Last I heard Manny was doing a guide book for all of the Rim Country.
Since he made Isolation what it is. I am sure it will be in his book.

Hey, everyone! Just saw this.

We are getting close. Down to submitting lists of topos and route descriptions that are missing to David, then update his information.

If we can get the whole shebang to out pagemaker person in two weeks, we hope the book will be out in a month or so after she gets it. So mid-November?

Sorry it is taking so long - it has been a daunting task. 565 routes in 51 different areas, just for Sedona.

Price-wise, we have no idea until we find out how many pages and what size it is going to need to be. We are hoping for a 6" X 9" standard guidebook size.

We will probably have a book release party at the Vertical Relief climbing gym in Flagstaff. I will keep everyone posted as to the timeframe as it evolves.

This is a Sedona guide, not a Flagstaff guide.

The question you ask did not come up in the process. David has climbed most of them. MisterE

Update: It looks like a rough draft will be perused this Christmas, maybe a January release date? Here's hoping!

We shipped the thing off to our page-maker person just before Christmas.

I have seen 15 pages since then, and they look good!

Soon, I hope - but it is out of my hands at this point.

First Proof
First Proof



Just got through editing the first proof and sent it off to The Doctor on Friday. A few changes, and one more proof to go. We are thinking late October-early November as a release date - just in time for Sedona season!

The breakdown: 306 pages covering 25 different areas, over 550 routes - $35.00

Thanks for your interest, Erik & David

Thanks for the positive feedback, Michael.

It shouldn't be too long now! Still feeling good about getting this out in 2010.

The second edit is almost done. I think this is the last one, so it shouldn't be long now. Doubtful if we will make Christmas, but it will probably be available in January.

Thanks for your interest and inquiry,
