We have just released version 2 of the Costa Blanca Ridges MiniGuide by Mark Glaister. This new version is in our new mobile format – an interim format which is best used on a smartphone or tablet.
This is our second Mobile MiniGuide after Gower Sport Climbing back in October
2012. The format isn’t really ground-breaking but is a useful stop-gap between printed PDFs and a full App version.
The information in this MiniGuide has been slightly updated with a bit of feedback after version 1 and a slight modification of the way the text descriptions are presented. It covers the same five ridges – El Realet, Espolón Central, Bernia, Toix and Segaria.
The new Spain : Costa Blanca Rockfax print guidebook actually covers four of these ridges as well with the same information and this Mobile MiniGuide just adds a portable version plus the bonus Segaria Ridge.
We are now offering the Costa Blanca Ridges MiniGuide for free with every online purchase of the Spain : Costa Blanca guide from this web site.
The Spain : Costa Blanca Rockfax has been printed ahead of schedule. We were originally expecting stock to be at the distributors on 20th February but we now reckon that we will have stock on 13th February. This means that people going out for their half term holidays should be able to get a copy if they order now.
Order now at a Special Offer Price of £24.95 (RRP £29.95)
Update: 13th Feb – The offer has now ended and the pre-orders have been shipped.
- Books should be delivered to UK addresses by Friday 15th February.
- Books to else where in Europe should be there before 27th February but may well be there earlier.
NOTE – We can’t guarantee this delivery date and a dump of snow in the wrong place could stall the process but we are currently pretty confident that the books will arrive on time.
