"A virtually flawless climbing guide - an admirable and practical book - extraordinary clarity" - OWG Judges, November 2004
The crags covered in this first edition of Western Grit ranged from the popular Staffordshire gritstone edges of the Roaches, Hen Cloud and Ramshaw up onto the remote Kinder and Bleaklow moorland crags. Also contained are the superb Chew Valley edges, selected Lancashire quarries and small natural edges and the fine sandstone buttresses on Merseyside of Helsby, Pex Hill and Frodsham (not strictly gritstone we know but a logical inclusion being short of information at the time).
The book sold well, eventually selling out in 2009.
