Check out the latest additions to the shop, including some rather tasty t-shirts.
Two new bouldering guidebooks hit the shelves this month; David Flanagan’s guidebook to bouldering in Ireland documents over 1700 problems in 90 areas From Font 3 to 8b; and further afield the rapid development of world class bouldering in South Africa’s Rocklands is recorded. For those with sights set on higher summits the first English language guidebook to mountaineering in the High Atlas of Morocco outlines walks, climbs and scrambles on 40 peaks throughout the range.
If you like to do more than scratch the surface of the places you visit, the latest book in the Rock Trails series tells the story of the Peak District's landscape from its tropical beginnings to its rugged gritty present. And if you prefer to eat up the miles at speed, we have a new guide to mountain running in Snowdonia.
History buffs can immerse themselves in Tony Howard’s account of the British first ascent of Norway’s Troll Wall. There are also new accounts of two of the most tragic days in high altitude mountaineering – Everest 1996 and K2 2008. A new edition of the illustrated history of the artists of the Alpine Club includes biographical details of over 100 artists, from Edward Whymper to the present day.
On DVD we have The Pinnacle, in which Dave MacLeod and Andy Turner pay tribute to Robin Smith and Jimmy Marshall by setting out to repeat their legendary week on Ben Nevis in 1960, when they climbed six first ascents on consecutive days, including the Orion Face Direct. The Reel Rock Film Tour 2010 showcases some of the most exciting climbing films of the year from Big Up and Sender Films - hard bouldering, scary speed soloing and wild alpine peaks!
