Spring 2015 will see the publication of the third edition of the UK’s best selling guidebook - Eastern Grit.
The original 2001 version arguably changed the format of guidebooks for ever. A significantly revised edition was published in 2006 with 100 extra pages and 900 extra routes - 2950 in total.
Eight years on and it is time for a new version. Once again the book has been expanded with more coverage of the main cliffs and the inclusion of many of the minor venues that were left out last time round. It is now comes out at a massive 520+ pages with over 3800 routes!
All the cliffs have been rephotographed in glorious detail, every page has been redesigned and all the descriptions and grades have been checked against the UKClimbing databases and updated where appropriate. The book includes a superb set of inspiring action photographs from some renown photographers plus a plethora of graded lists. It is full of the kind of intimate knowledge that only comes from many years of climbing on these superb gritstone cliffs.
