UPDATED!: We are proud to announce our next guidebook The Obed: A Climber’s Guide to the Wild and Scenic, by Kelly Brown. It has finally been finished and sent off to the printer. Sorry for the delays, but we think that the wait will be worth it! As you can see to the left, the book is now available for pre-sale exclusively at GreenerGrassPublishing.com, and will be available for sale everywhere around the beginning of July, 2011. This book has been in the works for a long time, and we think that it is our most stunning yet! The guide features photographs from Knoxville local Mark A. Large, who has really put in the extra work in order to make this thing sing with action, as well as many others. Kelly Brown, a long-time local and developer, has done an amazing job of sharing his love for the magical climbing area known as Obed, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
The Obed: A Climber’s Guide to the Wild and Scenic fully describes the sport climbing, trad climbing, and bouldering found at the confluences of the Obed River and Clear Creek. It does so with descriptions of every route or problem, color photos of the routes, tons of topo maps, recommended routes lists, pages of history and contributor essays, tick lists, and tons of action photos to get you psyched.
