Southern Sandstone Climbs has been published and is now available for ordering with free delivery in the UK. The information is also available on the Rockfax App via the Download tab on the Crags tab.
The book represents the end of many years of effort by author Daimon Beail who has been diligently beavering away, ably supported by his partner Emma Harrington, while both of them keep going on full-time jobs. It is testimony to their dedication that the standard of the photography is so high. Anyone who has climbed in the area will realise how difficult it is to get big crag photos. If you are unsure then just try fitting some of these crag shots in a single wide-angle lens photo and I am sure you will see that it is no easy matter.

We have just added the information from the Rockfax print book Northern England to the Rockfax App. This covers Yorkshire Grit, the North York Moors crags and Northumberland. The coverage extends to all the main climbing areas and an introduction to the bouldering on offer.
We have added geo-located maps to this book so that you can navigate on the climbing-specific Rockfax maps without a data signal.
On the app, check Crags > Downloads to see the Northern England package. If it doesn’t appear, try quitting and relaunching the app to force a connection to the Apple App Store.
We have just published a new edition of TradCLIMBING+, one of our series of performance books. The original edition came out in 2007. This new version contains minor changes only.
We have updated the North Wales Climbs app package to include a near full guide to North Wales Slate. All the recent developments in Australia and Twll Mawr Quarries have been added, and coverage for all the main crags included in the previous version has been expanded to cover the majority of the routes in the Slate Quarries. The information has been put together by Rockfax guidebook author and Llanberis local Mark Reeves.
To get the guide you need to first download the Rockfax app to your iOS device (Android version due later this year). Then check the Downloads section to locate the North Wales Climbs and Slate Quarries package. More information about the Rockfax App.
For people who previously purchased either the full North Wales Climbs package, or the Slate package, this is a free upgraded. Just go to Crags > Downloads > North Wales Climbs and then tap on ‘Update’ next to the correct package.
We have also added geo-location to all the other maps in the guide so that you can now see yourself as a blue dot on out crag overview maps.
A blue dot appears even if you have no 4G connection to show you where you are on the offline map.
