REI just opened a 50,000 sq. ft. mega store in D.C. The one thing you can't buy is any local climbing guide. They claim they don't have the shelf space. Make REI the co-op again. Should we stop spending money there if the co-op was stolen by the $1 billion a year corporation.
If you want the PATC guides for Carderock or Great Falls catch me at the crag, either book is discounted to $10 to make the transaction easier.
