The guidebook contains a vast amount of varied bouldering from lowballs to highballs, desperate to easy, serious to fun, and from highly esoteric to world class esoteric. The whole idea of the guidebook is not to be “mainstream” but many of the locations are very pleasant and perfect if you want to explore and potter around on rock and simply enjoy yourself.
For this edition, the climbs of the South West have been split into two volumes; this, the first, covering areas close to centres of population such as the Avon Gorge, Wye Valley. and Dorset.
The guide comprehensively covers all the popular areas including Harrison's Rocks, High Rocks and Bowles Rocks and some very exoteric chalk climbing!
Definitive collection of books for anyone trad or sport climbing in the Forest of Dean or Wye Valley
One of three 'Climbers Club' guides to the Wye Valley area - this volume, written by Martin Crocker, describes the short “grit-like” sandstone boulders / cliffs that abound in the area. The 'Forest of Dean' experience is one of soft, leafy and shady surrounds where the heady mix of grit-like solo-bouldering of up to 10m has great appeal particularly for those who can't face or are unwilling to travel the 160 miles or so to the Peak.
