Gardom's chapter download

Posted by Niall Grimes on 10/02/2010

With a nod and a wink to understatement, the most eagerly-awaited guide yet from the BMC, From Froggatt to Hell and Back, is hobbling steadily towards completion. And just as a whiff of what's to come, here's a sample chapter to whet your appetite.

The Gardom's Edge chapter showcases may of the features that will make this guide well worth the wait: gobsmackingly clear and attractive photo-topos; the cream of current climbing photography; route descriptions that are the result of unjustifiable dedication to the crag; an editor's choice to give an extra insight into the crag and the mind of the author; first-time documentation of the latest generation of boulder problems to be developed along the edge; a superb and detailed bouldering circuit; clear maps to get you to the crag first time; distant shots of crags to make buttress navigation a breeze; entertainment and inspiration in equal measure; clear, classic and timeless design; an almost erotic level of accuracy across all the information; an emotionally-charged level of attention to all the details that make a guidebook into a firm favourite.

Seems hard to believe? Hell yeah. Simple lick on the clink below and see for yourself.

ZoomTopo: crags like you’ve never seen them before

ZoomTopo is a fully interactive way of viewing crags on your computer and tablet. Route lines, along with grade and stars information, are overlaid on superb, high definition pictures of the crag. Hover the mouse over the line and get the info. Filter your search for grade or stars and see what’s on offer for you and what appeals. We think you’ll be amazed at the detail you can pick out. It’s even possible to see what size of runner you will need for the crux. Is this cheating? Probably.
