This single book covered all the major bouldering areas in the Peak District and was loosely based on the previous two Peak bouldering guidebooks written by Allen Williams and Jason Myres and published by On The Edge. The book included all the areas in these two books and many more. It existed in two editions, the first published in 1998 and then a reprint in 2000, finally selling out in December 2004.

Format - The book had black and white boulder maps and a few topos. It was the first Rockfax to use a text-based style-sheet system for the route names, descriptions and grades. We are still using this system today in all our books and is also fully integrated with the online databases making it incredibly easy to change guide formats and upload guidebook information to the databases.

New Edition - A new edition is due in the summer of 2013.

One Review for Peak Bouldering (1998)

  1. Neil Bentley, High Mag said on

    Having had a chance to use the guide for myself, plus liaising with others, it has become apparent that it’s pretty damn good – well laid out, excellent diagrams, fascinating symbols, good location maps and introductions for our European friends.
