Does anyone know where i could get a copy of this alternate to supertaco for yosemite big walls or if there are other published topo books for el cap containing routes not found in chris mac's book, like sunkist.
thanks,
blakeb

Blake, I have it...I can make you a copy. I think the Yos mountain shop still sells it maybe. Amazon?

I can't help you with the Reid book, but there's a TR with beta on Sunkist in Tuan's page:

http://www.terragalleria.com/mountain/info/yosemite/

Also, don't know if he has Sunkist, but there's a bunch of handwritten topos on Cmac's Obscurities page (if you haven't already seen it):
http://www.supertopo.com/topos/yosemite/obscurities.html

I think most of the Yose topos that the Fish website and bigwalls.com have are links to Tuan's page, but you might check them out as well.

Hope this helps-Bret

Hey AM:

I am not saying it's necessary, and good on you if you choose to climb with less beta as opposed to more. But...

If you want a quite detailed/updated topo of Sunkist, head over to www.supertopo.com in the forums, find passthepitonspete, and ask him for it. He keeps excellent topos of every route he's ever climbed and I know he has one for sunkist. He seems always happy to help folks out with beta.

-Kate.

Sunkist is an overlooked classic. It's one of the best A3's on the whole damn crag, and it hardly ever gets climbed, simply because it's not in the McTopo.

Hell yeah, I've got beta. Send me a note. I sure wish more people would climb it - Sunkist is stunning.

The link to Tuan is from my ascent - my partner wrote it, but failed to mention my name - sheesh.

Hey Blake, I saw one copy of the Reid book at Wilsons in Bishop a week or so ago. Good luck!
