I am writing a new guidebook for the Orient Bay, Kama Bay and Thunder Bay areas. it will be a full-color book, 128 pages, featuring select routes (approx. 100 routes), color photos and route descriptions. My very part-time company Granite Publishing, in December 2000 published "Superior Ice" and it has been out of print for 5 years. In the meantime there are scores of new routes, including many high-standard thin ice and mixed routes. This area now has nearly 500 documented ice and mixed routes!

To fund the production expenses of the book I have started a Kickstarter project. We have only 28 days to reach our goal and could really use the support of the community.

If you ever wanted to climb in these areas and want to know where to go, please help fund the project! $30 gets you a guidebook. If you are a mountain shop and want to do an ad, we can work that in too.


Please contribute! If the project doesn't get funded, there is no obligation. For further information write me:
