Thanks for putting these books together.
Is Cashiers next on your list?

Cashiers; now that would be one hell of a project. That place takes extreme time and extreme talent and I seem to be lacking at least one of those most of the time!

You would be surprised how much of that is already done and in electronic form.

Shannon has been compiling a guide for the Cashiers area for some time. Talked to him the other day and he said he was about to hire a plane for aerial shots. His problem is that he puts them up faster than he can compile them! Is a guidebook a vanity project if, like, 50% of the routes were put up by the author? Even then a lot of the cliffs won't be included for access reasons.
Reminds me of a time right after one of Kelley's guides came out, I think ed. 3(?), and when I stopped at the 64 overlook next to Whitesides I ran into a couple of kids with their new guide eagerly trying to piece together what was what. I told them, 'Every cliff you see has routes on it; none of them are in that book,' and one of them wailed, 'Well what good is it?'
Indeed.

Great that Shannon is going on a Cashier's book; he would be the man to do it. I would not call it vanity at all; just taking time to share some good info that others can use. Just like posting a route on mountain project, most people's intent is to share what they love rather than simply pad personal ego...hopefully that's their intent!
