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.
