Award nomination for BMC guidebook

Posted by Alex Messenger on 24/10/2006

The BMC guidebook Burbage, Millstone and Beyond has been selected as a finalist in the Mountain Exposition category of this year’s Banff Mountain Book Competition.

The guidebook is one of four finalists in the category from a field of 26 entries. 

The other finalists are;

Bhutan: A Trekker’s Guide, by Bart Jordans

Colorado Ice: Vol. 1, 2nd Edition, by Jack Roberts

Thailand: A Climbing Guide, by Sam Lightner

 

A full list of entries and finalists in all categories can be found on the Banff Mountain Festivals website

 

 

The winner will be announced on Thursday 2 November as part of the evening programme at the Banff Mountain Book Festival.  Rumours that Volume Editor Dave Simmonite and Series Editor Niall Grimes are frantically searching Sheffield for a tuxedo hire company are untrue.

 

You can download a free sample of the guidebook here

 

It’s available to purchase from the BMC online shop, and we’ve got a special Christmas Cracker deal teaming it up with the 2002 Stanage guide – see the Special Offers section - http://www.thebmc.co.uk/shop.htm

The Outer Hebrides: Niall Grimes reviews the new SMC guide

Throw open any page in this new guidebook and, if there’s a heartbeat inside that overtrained husk that you call your body, you will immediately be lost in a world of dreams and inspiration. Drop-dead seacliffs yawn above wild Atlantic seascapes; climbers dotted on multipitch adventues on the most independent of geology; routes of every grade that cross impossible terrain thanks to a million Christmasses’-worth of jugs and cracks. Is this the last outpost of adventure for UK trad climbing? A Yukon of pump?
