I just got my hands on the new Adirondack Rock Climber's guide....sick!!! Jim and Jeremy did an amazing job on the sequel. I would definitely go to the website www.adirondackrock.com/purchase.htm and pre-order a copy. I'm being told it will be available around the 1st week of September. The 2nd Edition is full color and is a 2 volume set. Each volume is smaller than the previous version, which is nice. The attention to detail in this guidebook is second to none....quite impressive.
Met up with my good buddy JHaas after work on Friday for a whirlwind 24 hours. Drove to pick up "The Books" in my retired FedEx van/camper (just broken in at 300K miles). This photo is taken outside of Syracuse..we made it to New Paltz at 2 am, just in time for last call at Bacchus.
Spent the day visiting with shops and gyms and climbers along the way. It was awesome.
Rock and Snow-->The Edge Halfmoon-->Mountain Man Supply (Saratoga, but they've sent some to Old Forge)--> Rocksport-->Fountain Square Glens Falls-->The Mountaineer-->Southern Adirondack Rockclimbers Festival !
Psyched that pre-orders are on the way, and Brian has some at High Peaks in LP as well. I'm sure they'll find their way throughout the northeast...but I'm not part of that rodeo.
Bring on fall.
Before 1000lbs of books got loaded into the adventuremobile...
Nice Doc, I like how our journey reads like the set list of a jamband festival. This is what I remember of the Friday Set List: FRIDAY 1st set: Sound check - Drive Saratoga to Little Falls --> Opener - Fred P Jones at Moss Island --> Drive to Pompey
2nd Set: Opener: signing 150 books --> packaging, labeling, loading the van --> Drums/Space Jam: late night drive to New Paltz, bright moon and fog --> Encore teaser: Disneyland/Nears --> Encore: Beers at Bacchus until close
