About Rockfax

ROCKFAX publish rock climbing guidebooks to areas all over the world. The company was started in 1990 with the first guidebook Fax01 – Yorkshire Limestone. Since then we have published many more guidebooks to areas all over Europe and the USA and redefined the style of guidebooks in the modern era.


Guide Books

Our printed guidebooks use every available modern publishing technique to create visually-stunning guidebooks which use full colour photos, photo-topos, text descriptions and maps to create the most user-friendly rock climbing guidebooks anywhere in the World.


Our MiniGUIDES are downloadable PDF guides produced in a similar style to our printed books – more info.


We also have a series of climbing performance coaching books Sport CLIMBING+, Trad CLIMBING+ and Winter CLIMBING+.

The Web Site

This web site provides support for all our guidebooks. We have an extensive Route Database which contains a listing of every route in our publications with a full description and the possibility to vote on the grade and quality of the route, and lodge your comments. The information that we gather from the database is vital in helping us produce future editions of our guidebooks.


We have a dedicated advertising system on the site aimed at individuals and small companies who have accommodation to offer in some of the areas that our guidebooks cover – more info. We also have space for print advertising in most of our publications – contact our advertising manager.
