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.
We have also made a donation to the El Chorro Bolt Fund and welcome approaches from all bolt funds, from anywhere in Europe covered by a Rockfax guidebook, to get involved. Contact us using the form.
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 magnificent Tre Cima
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.
The Southeast face of Cima Piccola
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.
Peak Bouldering has been published and what a whopper it is! At 544 pages it is significantly bigger than any previous Rockfax – check the photo below with an Eastern Grit for comparison!
Pre-orders are being processed today. We hope all of them will be sent out but there were quite a few so it might not be possible to get them all done. The local Peak shops mostly have stock as well which is just in time for the bank holiday weekend.
