Stock: Sorry, this has sold out

The first ever Rockfax guidebook and one that started the change in the shape of British guidebooks. Inspired by Mick Ryan's vision of a better way of presenting rock climbing information, Ben Walker and Mick put together a simple and clear photo-topo-based system to described the routes, accomplishing the master stroke which so few guidebook writers since have managed to follow, that of putting the diagram and routes on the same page (a maxim followed by Rockfax in every book since). The book concentrated on the harder sport routes and sold slowly over the years.
