frist of all, the last pitch of Weissners is the AU CHEVAL flake.  It is French for 'like a horse'.  People who by your gudebook are stupider for theyre efforts.

Syko is strong - he prolly does that flake as a layback. None of that wimpy french technique.

I thought there already was a sport route bolted top to bottom up the middle of cannon cliff.
And isn't "bolted sport" route redundant?

We ello Louie, If ou ave been climbing on da Cannon since da 1950s den it is quite likely ou are so old that ou are adled in da mind. Me publisher is a, how ou say responsible for da Au Cheval mistake. Unfortunatly me cannot blame him for your, how ou say small penis syndrome. signed, confused old fart. P.S. Meet me in the climbers parking lot for some horse back riding lessons. I really mean it old friend. Syko

For the record, I like the guide despite the fact that I will have to resist calling John "The Author" If I ever meet him ;)

I learned the hard way the first time I wrote that book. Don't ever let the publisher and his computer person be in charge of editing or you end up with the author,the author,the author. I plan on with the help of many friends, in particular Jamie Cunningham to publish the next one ourselves. The Author

what is it that's holding this thing up? is it design, layout, information...what?  is it something that others can help with? I do book layout & design & it's not all that hard once you have the info & a layout template.

I know everyones chaffing at the bit the good news is that it is nearly done.

Didn't want to rush it this fall, We are working on advertising, photo's and info and have made the decision to take the time to proof it, again and again. try to get everything right, produce a guide that is not only accuarate but a good product, much like the last one, and release it in the spring!

Hang in there, it's coming

Louis: it seems strange for me to correct a French speaker, but here goes. In France the technique of straddling an arÃÂȘte or a flake is usually stated as à cheval, meaning "on a horse" (hence straddling)! Climbing the "silly flake" at the end of the Lakeview and Weissner routes on Cannon often resembles a technique which French guidebooks sometimes term "plaisir des demoiselles", although demanding a good deal of the old English "thrutch" as well. Respectfully submitted, etc.etc. and so forth---Jeff Lea
