Swain has been working for the last few years on a guidebook to Southern New Hampshire climbing. He has posted about it on the various climbing boards from time to time. He uses the name Gunkswest on the boards. I have no inside info but my guess is that he has no plans to update the Gunks Guide. I could be wrong but it is a big job and I think he has moved on.

Here is his user page on mountainproj:

It's true, I have a blog. http://climbandpunishment.blogspot.com/
