The 2008 edition of Lofoten is no longer available for sale in the UK but there are still copies available in Lofoten from the climbing shop in Henningsvaer.
We will be adding the guidebook to our iPhone and Android App which should be available later this year.
We have just made the first set of quarterly donations in 2014 to the various Bolt Funds and the ACT that we support with online sales of Rockfax guidebooks. The largest donation has gone to the North Wales Bolt Fund which received £274 from sales and Point of Sale donations by people buying the book direct from the Rockfax web site. The ACT received £81 and there were some smaller amounts for the Dorset and Gary Gibson Bolt Funds. In total the donations amounted to £394 for the first quarter of the year which is a great total.
Thanks to everyone who supported this by buying direct from the Rockfax web site, or making a generous PoS donation.
The Rockfax Peak Bouldering guidebook is now available for pre-ordering at a special offer price of £24.95 (RRP £29.95). Orders place now will be dispatched as soon as we receive stock in the first week of May.
More about the book including a photo gallery
The new Peak Bouldering Rockfax is just about to go to the printers. We expect it to be available in the first or second week in May.
The book is huge – 544 pages, 3394 distinct problems on 53 crags – making it significantly bigger than any previous Rockfax guidebook. It has taken quite some effort to put together but we are nearly there.
Keep an eye on the site for the special pre-order offer which will be available from April 2.
Back in July we set up a new initiative to make donations to various Bolt Funds and the ACT based on areas covered by Rockfax guidebooks – the news item is here. I am pleased to announce that the payments for the second half of the year have just been made which total over £750, taking the full year total to over £900, 10% of which came from Point of Sale (PoS) donations made by people buying direct from the Rockfax web site.
The largest donation has gone to the North Wales Bolt Fund with £1 being donated from all the initial sales be they online or via shops. The total donated for the period up to December 31 was £520.50 which includes some PoS donations. The ACT received £206.50 again with some generous PoS donations.
