Last year I purchased the complete  set from volume 1 to the present for 20$ at a yard sale in northern NH. The early volumes have some amazing stuff in them!

Also, I know Dan Brodien and Roger Daman, who both live in St. Johnsbury, where very active putting up routes in the 40's, 50's, 60's (Lakeview on Cannon) both in NH and VT. They where quite active at Wheeler back then (I have digital photo copies of them climbing on Wheeler, Artist Bluff, and Cannon). I recorded an interview I did with them (along with Andy Fisher) in the process of researching some of the history for Jon's book. They may have a deeper cut knowledge of the history of Greens Cliff rock climbing.

Dave, next time you stop by Sykes's place, he has my almost complete set of Appalachia from the beginning and into the late 1990's. Go have a social with him and do some reading.

I'll guess I agree it seems like there wasn't really an issue up there so I guess I am slightly displeased signs went up without any real impact research done... seemed a non-issue.

It seems irresponsible to me to park along the side of the road when there is a permanent parking lot at the top. I've never seen that area completely full. Looking at the base of cathedral and west side rd. by Diana's baths I worry about the same erosion and widening happening. I still park at the top.

...However, if you see Eric Nelson or Phil, please express your displeasure - in a respectful manner!!! Thank you for your consideration.

Al I'm not sure why this should really displease climbers? Not a big deal to park 100 feet down the road if having a top-cliff crag session is it?
