The end of 2014 will see the publication of a new edition of the Northern Limestone Rockfax. This version covers all of the limestone sport climbing and selected traditional climbing venues in Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire (the Peak area has migrated to its own guidebook – Peak Limestone in 2012).
The Dolomites : Rock Climbs and Via Ferrata guidebook is now available for pre-ordering at a special offer price of £25.95 (RRP £29.95)
Pre-order now to receive your copy as soon as possible. We anticipate the book being published on around 6/7/8 August and ‘Pre-orders’ will be sent out directly after this. UK orders should arrive on 8/11/12 August, pre-orders to the rest of Europe, overt the next week or so. Shops should have stock by the weekend of 16/17 August. It could be several weeks before shops in Italy and the rest of Europe have stock.
Six months into the year and it is time for the second set of donations to the various Bolt Funds and the ACT that we support with online sales of Rockfax guidebooks. Once again the largest donation has gone to the North Wales Bolt Fund which received £436 making a total £1233 donated since the North Wales Climbs book was published in November 2013. The ACT received £281 which was boosted by some very generous Point of Sale donations and the success of the Peak Bouldering guide.
Thanks to everyone who supported this by buying direct from the Rockfax web site, or making a generous PoS donation
We have been making great progress on the Dolomites guide and it is now booked in the printers in July, and should be published in the first week in August.
The book looks amazing and is going to be another bumper tome, not quite as big as Peak Bouldering but still over 500 pages. It is unlikely that we will do a joint launch with the forthcoming Rockfax App but we will have the App up and running later in the summer and the Dolomites Climbs and Via Ferrata will be included in that as well.
Getting hold of a copy
We will be offering the book at a special offer pre-order price from early July. These pre-orders will be sent out as soon as we get stock and is by far the fastest way to get hold of a copy of the book. We anticipate them being available on around 9th/10th August. We will not have any copies of the book before this date.
This summer we will be publishing a big new book to the magnificent Dolomites in northern Italy. This guide will cover everything you need for a climbing trip regardless of ability, whether it be sport, trad, via ferrata or a combination of all three. It features all the major areas and is the only guidebook available to have such comprehensive coverage.
