"Because this book is as close to perfect a guidebook as we are likely to get."
Ed Douglas writing about Peak Gritstone East, Climber Magazine - Feb 2002 - Full review
Ed Douglas's praise for the award-winning Peak Gritstone East was well-merited at the time but we now think that he may have been wrong. The latest edition of the Rockfax guidebook to cover the eastern gritstone edges of the Peak District is, in our opinion, even better than its predecessor. It contains all the style and elegance that made Peak Gritstone East such a popular guidebook, but we have refined the look, added more usability and, most importantly, added over 100 more pages packed with nearly 900 more routes. That's 2950 of the best routes in the Peak!
Format - The 19 different crags are beautifully illustrated using full-colour photo-topos accompanied by inspiring descriptions, over 50 action shots and loads of crag layout maps, tables, graded lists and route symbols.
We have modified the now-standard full-colour format so that the information is even clearer. All the crags featured have been re-photographed using a significantly better digital camera, plus we have 5 years of experience at using Photoshop in which to refine and improve our technique for making the crag photos as clear and detailed as possible.
