The new Peak Limestone guidebook is due for publication in April 2020. The 57th Rockfax is the first of a new design style bringing even more clarity to our coverage whilst integrating both our print and digital coverage to make the best out of both formats.
The new book will cover sport and trad routes on all the usual crags ranging from Stoney, Horseshoe and Harpur Hill; through Chee Dale, Raven Tor and Water-cum-Jolly; down Dovedale and across to the Matlock crags like High Tor and Wildcat.
All the new routes have been added and the crag photos retaken using the latest technology to give the biggest, most detailed crag photos ever seen. In the print version, this is combined with stunning action photography to create a superbly inspiring book - check out the sample chapter. Lesser crags which don't make the cut for the print book are fully covered in the digital version to give all the route information you need to make the most of the fine limestone found in the Peak area.
Changes since 2012 edition - New set of crag and action photos, new maps and fully revised descriptions. Many new routes on existing crags. 16 new crags across print and digital.
Rockfax App Version
The print and digital versions will be published at the same time. The digital version will contain 16 extra crags. These are minor venues, some of which have been covered in print before, or ones where access is in dispute. In addition, the digital version has minor buttresses and routes from other major crags included. More information on the App here.
