22nd Nov 2011 France Languedoc-Roussillon by Adrian Berry ? Rockfax

Last summer we went to the Ardeche with some friends for a family camping holiday. It was pre-school age for the kids so we went in September and were blown away by the area. It was stunning....

The Good Mountain Biiking Guide 27th Sep 2011 The Good Mountain Biking Guide

Somebody had to do it. The UK has been crying out for a guide like this for quite some time. I remember back in the late 80s getting my first mountain bike and riding it up Snowdon from Llanberis...

font a bloc vol1 20th Sep 2011 Font A Bloc - Jacky Godoffe

Yet another guide to Font you groan? Well bear with me for just a minute as this one’s not half bad and offers a slightly different approach. First of all let’s get the cover photo out of the...

west-country-climbs-cover 7th Sep 2011 West Country Climbs - Rockfax

yorkshire-grit-bouldering 19th May 2011 Yorkshire Gritstone Bouldering Vol 1 & 2

The first of these books to land on my desk was Vol 2. I was a little surprised to see so many crags I'd never even heard of, with so many classics omitted. Fortunately I spotted the 'Vol 2' and...

Troll Wall 16th May 2011 Troll Wall - Tony Howard

Mallorca11-cover 22nd Mar 2011 Guidebook: Mallorca Rockfax

Mallorca is probably the foreign climbing destination I have been to most. Actually, that accolade has to go to Fontainebleau, but Font is so familiar now that it almost doesn't feel like a...

Ireland bouldering Guide Cover 18th Mar 2011 Guidebook: Bouldering In Ireland

What a lovely guidebook! Can't really fault it. Personally I'm not a big fan of the landscape format, but I appreciate that it lends itself better to pictures, and at the end of the day, one of my...
