We are pleased to announce Tough Schist, the Vermont rock climbing guidebook, will be available in stores this spring. Some limited advertising space is available in the book, reserved for a few companies that we'd like to have as partners. Vermont is a state with many outdoor enthusiasts, and draws more visitors from nearby metropolitan areas like Boston, New York, and Montreal. We see climbers using many outdoor products in Vermont, and believe advertising in our guidebook would increase visibility for your company.
Deposits will guarantee placement. Checks can be written to Vermont Rock Press, LLC and sent to our PO box:
