The fully updated and revamped edition of the definitive guide to climbing on Staffordshire gritstone is now in stock.
After a major overhaul, the classic gritstone guide to Staffordshire has never looked better. 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 added; bouldering sections have been clarified; the Churnet Valley has had a total makeover to bring it the coverage it deserves.
For anyone who has enjoyed the bouldering circuits that appeared in the latest Stanage guide, then good news. The new Roaches guide has got five carefully selected circuits that will reveal Staffordshire climbing in a new and magical light.
Whether you are a first-time visitor after the famous climbs, or a long-time local after something new, this guide will take you to the places you want to go, and show you so much along the way. A guidebook as bright and as lovely and as warm as the golden sunsets that light this, the most beautiful of gritstone counties.
