This autumn sees a reprint of the classic BMC Roaches guide, fully updated and revamped for 2009. And you can download a chapter for free today.
With a major overhaul, the classic gritstone guide to Staffordshire has never looked so good. All the good stuff is still here, with plenty more besides. Maps are bigger better and clearer; once-small crag topos now fill whole pages; errors have been ironed out and new ones introduced; grades rationalised; new routes and problems have been added; bouldering sections have been made loads clearer; the book now has five carefully selected bouldering circuits, a recent innovation for British guides; the Churnet Valley has had a total makeover to bring it the coverage it deserves.
Anyway, enough talk. Simply clink on the lick below for an eyeful.
