http://www.cutloose.ca.tt has some info on rocklands and 5 star problems,

when you're in rocklands it will be very easy to find out where and what the classic lines are :) especially during season.

http://www.saclimb.co.za isn't bad, but the topo's are very outdated and most of the classics 8A and above aren't recorded. I think The Vice, Nutsa, Out of Balance, Green Mamba, Madiba, etc are all missing.

http://www.bouldering.co.za redirects to Marijus's site and has some info.
The two obvious missing topos are for the Roadcrew and Riverside. Perhaps Marijus can nag Evan for these as they were quite good? I sent Marijus a bad sassies topo, but it has most of the classics. I'll ask him to put it up.

http://www.depakhuys.com has topo's for the depakhuys bouldering. Last I checked though, obvious classics such as Ray of Light and Gliding through the waves like dolphins weren't included in the topo's.

This should help, but once you are there you wont have any problems getting a tour and beta.

He's busy working on the guide, as opposed to reading all your useless posts :wink:

A bouldering guide is about 3 times the amount of work as a route guide, and look how long Tony took to release the new Western Cape Crag guide, and others with similar guides. It's not as simple as you assume.
