Climbing guide- DartmoorA comprehensive guide to all the climbing routes and a large selection of the best bouldering on the granite tors within the national park. The upland plateau of Dartmoor covers 954sq km and is part of the largest area of granite in the UK. The moor is vast and, in places, barren wilderness cleaved by rivers and steep hills. You might even recognize it from the Sherlock episode! Popular for many years has been climbing on the granite outcroppings and tors of Dartmoor, since the last guide there has been an excessive amount of bouldering development covering a variety of places and grades. Though one thing is for sure- take lots of skin, Dartmoor is ever elusive for trashing and thrashing even the toughest of skin! This guide covers area of Haytor, Bovey Tracey, Moors Tors north, south and Dewerstone- equipped with accurate guides, descriptions etc...
The Climbers Club continue with their impressive publication schedule with this new guide to Portland containing a mixture of pure sport routes, some great trad climbing and loads of bouldering.
Perfect gift for any local Rock Climber, or if you want to visit the area. The long-awaited successor to Iain Peters’s 1988 guide (out of print since April 1996) was published in June 2000. This covers the popular and mainly conventional climbing at Baggy Point, the adventurous and far from conventional climbing on the Culm Coast (inc. Lower Sharpnose), and the serious adventure climbing on the Atlantic Coast of Cornwall (inc. Tintagel, Pentire, and Carn Gowla).
This 2012 edition of the Dorset Rockfax features Portland, Swanage and Lulworth, covering all the sport routes in these areas, and also the bulk of the quality trad climbing at Swanage and Lulworth. This amazing area has gone from a backwater 30 years ago to being one of the most popular sport climbing areas in the country.
