/ Wanted: Yosemite Guide book
I’m after a guide book/topo for Yosemite to start planning a trip next year.
Yosemite valley free climbs or similar would be great.
2003 edition of Yosemite Valley free climbs, same picture on the cover as the 2006 edition currently listed on the Climbers Shop website. No ticks, tears or creases, slightly grubby. £15 posted.

This is now available for anyone interested. Payment by bank transfer.
We found the supertopo book pretty poorly written with poor descriptions huge paragraphs of useless waffle and photos taken from what looks like the hubble telescope they are that far away. Sack off Yosemite with its Black Death infected Squirrels overly busy campsite and go to Toulomne instead
I think I have one kicking about somewhere... I'll have a dig. Never going to use it!
Book I have is the Falcon Guide: Yosemite Free Climbs.
let me know if it’s of any use to you. Postage and a pint in payment.
We have the Tuolumne Free Climbs from Super Topo for sale for £12 inc postage. We did prefer that area unless you're doing the big wall stuff. The guide books there we found are not as good as what we're used to but after a couple of routes we got used to them.
Book available to any other takers if the OP doesn't want it.
Lake District-based runner Kim Collison has set a new speed record on the Bob Graham Round in winter. Kim completed the round in just 15 hours 47 minutes, knocking a big chunk from the previous fastest winter time of 18:18 set by Jim Mann in 2013.
