Hey all,

The place to buy these here in Nashville, Cumberland Transit, says they don't have anymore and that more are NOT being printed. Anyone got a spare?

You don't need one. All the routes are labeled at Kings Bluff and the ones that aren't....you should try anyway!

I know they're labelled, I've been there a few times, I just want the guide to help plan my time out there, and narrow down some of the choices. Or to know where ones of a given difficulty are. Or plenty other reasons

Try the southern climbers coalition. If they can't find you one they have guides that may include King's Bluff. If you still can't find one I have one you could MAYBE barrow.

Hey everyone,

Thanks so much. After hearing the whole thing is in Dixie Craggers I went ahead and bought a copy.

I've considered updating "little Crimpers," the guide i wrote tot he bluff when I lived in Clarksville. Would be easy for me to do and I have a new software program to play with topos.

If they is enough interest, let me know here and I put it together. Could have it done in a month. I could also provide a much more detailed history of the Bluff.

Cheers
Eman

I will also be working on a guide for people based in Clarksville. It will cover the main climbing area within a 2.5 hour drive of Clarksville. Should be out around Christmas.

King Bluff in August Clarksville in December, South East Road trip in March.

Indonesia will be out in March too.

A serious question here:

The Bluff is the most unique place that I have ever been to. You walk along a path reading little tags until you find the grade you want. You look up and see if the features of that route look interesting and/or doable, and if so you rope up. If not, you move to the next route.

I am not knocking KB, I really like the place. I'm not against a guide book, besides it's not my place to be for or against it. I just don't think I would buy one for the reasons described above.

The expanded version sounds very valuable.

THe bluff are a transitional climbing community. I've already received a dozen emails asking me to keep them in the loop.

I'm guessing most buyers would be people relocating to Clarksville buying the guide before they arrive.

I do think the Clarksville Climbing guide will be a better seller. It will cover six areas within 2.5 ours of Clarksvilles.

I am consider making this Kings Bluff Guide a free download on my website. I have to admit, download-able PDF files on RC.com wold be cool.
