I'm hoping to get to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison this October, but as far as I can tell, the latest (2016) guidebook doesn't appear to be something you can order to the UK.

I was wondering if anyone might have a copy they would be willing to sell, or even loan?

Have you tried calling Stanfords and seeing if they can get hold of it?  It might be easier for a business like theirs to do it than for you as an individual.

Impressive place.  I was there last September, just for a day touring rather than climbing.  The Painted Wall area looks terrific.

I've got a copy you could borrow (too nostalgic to sell) but I actually found some great online topos which I found more useful. Depending what routes you have in mind I can share pdfs (and some beta). We did the following - all excellent, with Scenic Cruise making it into my all-time top 10! 

Scenic Cruise (5.10d) https://rockaroundtheworld.co.uk/2019/08/29/the-scenic-cruise/

Comic Relief (5.10b) https://rockaroundtheworld.co.uk/2019/08/27/comic-relief/

Maiden Voyage (5.9) and Leisure Climb (5.9) https://rockaroundtheworld.co.uk/2019/08/26/into-the-black/

Can't understand why so few Brits have been - The Black is a stupendous place! PM for more info. Cheers, Dom

* edit - wrong scenic cruise!
