We have just made another quarterly donation to the various bolt funds supported by Rockfax & UKBoltFund.org. The publication of Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire has enabled us to crank up our donations for both the Yorkshire Bolt Fund and the Cumbria Bolt Fund. A grand total this quarter has been donated of £300 to the YBF and £232 to the CBF.
We will be repeating the same system that we ran for the North Wales Climbs book where £1 from the first 1500 sales, online and trade of the Northern Limestone book, is made to the appropriate bolt fund.
We have also made a donation of £90 to the BMC ACT based on a few Point of Sale donations plus a levy on all the online sales of UK-non-bolt area guidebooks.
We welcome approaches from all bolt funds, from anywhere in Europe covered by a Rockfax guidebook, to get involved. Contact us using this form.
Thanks to everyone who supported this by buying direct from the Rockfax web site, or making a generous PoS donation.
The Eastern Grit pages of the Rockfax Route Database have been updated and linked to entries on the UKC Logbook database.

We have just received the first copies of the new Northen Limestone guide and it looks great. Pre-orders will be sent out today (16 Jan) and should be there either Saturday 17 or early in the following week. Specialist retailers should receive their stock by the weekend or early next week.
The book looks as great as our previous books. Really good colour and the usual massive topos with great action photography. Congratulations to Mark Glaister who has been working really hard on this book for the last few years – a job well done!
