8/25/10 – Greener Grass Publishing, the young publishing company which recently released the wildly successful first guidebook to Horse Pens 40, is announcing the special pre-sale price for their newest guidebook Stone Fort Bouldering to be released at the beginning of October 2010. The limited-time pre-sale price is $19.99, available only at www.GreenerGrassPublishing.com. All pre-purchased copies of the book will be shipped as soon as the bulk shipment arrives and will be personally autographed by the author.
Stone Fort Bouldering, written by Andy Wellman, is the first ever printed guidebook to one of the country’s finest bouldering areas. With more than 670 documented problems found within, this guide literally includes hundreds of never before described problems for the visitor or local.
This book takes the Greener Grass style introduced in Horse Pens 40 Bouldering's meticulously detailed topo maps, tons of large action photos, and never before printed southern climbing history and takes them to a whole new level. The book is filled with the awesome, artsy color photos taken by such industry pros as Chris Brown, Andrew Kornylak, Jim Thornburg, Stephan Denys, Dan Lubbers, Dan Brayack, Wills Young, Sam Silvey, Luke Laeser, Mark Large, and more. It is also filled with more history about the Stone Fort than has ever been collected or documented before, with self styled essays and interviews by the major players from every generation Marvin Webb, Travis Eiseman, Bob Cormany, Sam Adams, Jody Evans, Adam Henry, Luis Rodriguez, Jeff Drumm, Ana Burgos, Chad Wykle, Ronnie Jenkins, Tony Lamiche, and Jimmy Webb.
The Stone Fort resides in the forest on the property of the Montlake Golf Course, just outside Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Montlake Golf Course is privately owned by Luken Holdings, who generously supported the creation of this guidebook. Despite having one of the longest climbing histories of any boulderfield in the South, the Stone Fort has been closed to the public for the majority of its existence. Local climbers, with the help of the Southeastern Climbers Coalition (SCC) helped negotiate the climbing access that climbers now enjoy there today. Greener Grass Publishing respects these efforts by the community and the SCC, and pledges to donate 5% of all sales from this guide to the SCC to help fund their continued mission.
