Classic Routes Of The Ecrins 5th Sep 2018 Classic Routes Of The Ecrins -0 Sbastian Constant

This is a delight of a guidebook. It's A5 portrait and 200 pages (but only 75mm thick) so fits into a rucksack pocket pretty easily. The cover is plastic laminated so it will stand up to a bit...

Edelrid OHM 4th Sep 2018 Edelrid OHM - Assisted Braking Device

I'm a big guy. I'm well used to being belayed by people who are lighter than me and have had my share of exciting falls / drops in my time. I now also have two boys who climb. They are both...

North Wales Bouldering 4th Dec 2017 North Wales Bouldering

I can safely say that this is the biggest climbing guide I have yet reviewed. At 668 pages it's a mighty tome that comes with a hefty price tag of £36.95. It may sound expensive, but it's...

Weighing 220g the Edelrid Shield Lite helmet is amongst the lightest on the market. It's a single-piece moulded foam construction with a hard outer shell. Inside there is a removable lattice of...

Edelrid Apus Pro Dry 26th Sep 2017 Climbing Ropes - Edelrid Apus Pro Dry 7.9 60m

Climbing with new ropes is a great feeling. One of security I guess. When I started out climbing a half rope was usually 9mm, with full ropes coming in at 10mm+. Obviously technology has...

Via Ferratas Of The French Alps 25th Sep 2017 Via Ferratas Of The French Alps

Via Ferratas are perhaps one of the oldest forms of adrenaline-based mountain activity. However they weren't originally designed with pleasure in use. Originating in the Italian Dolomites they...

Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell 12th Jun 2017 Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell

Part of Berghaus's Extrem lightweight range the Fastpacking Shell retails at £170 and weighs 250g. 250g for a fully waterproof jacket suitable for extreme mountain weather is impressive. It...

1001climbingtips andy kirkpatrick ofc485pxsticker 13th Oct 2016 1,001 Climbing Tips - Andy Kirkpatrick

1,001 tips on anything has to be a pretty tall order. 1,001 tips on a niche activity like climbing must be virtually impossible. Not so if you have the mind of Andy Kirkpatrick. I checked out...

punk in the gym 01 andy pollitt 13th Jul 2016 Punk In The Gym - Andy Pollitt

Andy Pollitt’s book was given to me by Vertebrate Publishing, the Sheffield-based business responsible for the majority of the recent climbing biographies, with a twinkle of the eye and a...

Mallorca-Cover-2015 15th Jun 2016 Spain: Mallorca Guidebook Rockfax

I lose track of whether this is the third or fourth edition of Rockfax’s Mallorca guide (actually, I just looked it up and discovered that it’s no less than the 7th!) such is the popularity of...

5&6Part2 17th May 2016 5 + 6 - Western & Northern Fontainebleau (Part 2)

I’ve been a long-time fan of Bart Van Raaij, the Fontainebleau fanatic who has singlehandedly reinvented the guidebook to what is probably the world’s most complicated climbing area. Bart’s...

img-thing 16th Mar 2016 Prana Continuum Trousers

I’ve not owned a pair of specifically-bouldering trousers for a few years. The Continuum are a comfortable and stylish pair of trousers with some nice micro features. Made from organic cotton...

Prana Bridger Jean 13th Jan 2016 Prana Bridger Jean

Prana have long been high in my estimation of climbing clothing, but I;ve never had the pleasure of actually testing any of it before. The Bridger Jean - sorry, I can't but help calling them...
