South Wales Bouldering has over 240 pages and 1100 boulder problems and covers the area from the western edges of Pembrokeshire, across the sandstone of the South Wales Valleys, coastal and mountain limestone and across to key venues on the side of the River Wye on the edge of the Forest of Dean.
With a wide array of problems with Font grades from 3 all the way to 8C, the guide has a full colour map and introduction for each section followed by a selection of topographical images, clear descriptions and inspiring imagery. Features such as GPS coordinates, approach information and clear scaled maps make it easy to find areas and individuals blocs.

The South Wales Bouldering Guide by Julian Sykes has over 1,240 problems with grades ranging from Font 3 to Font 8C catering for all ages of boulderer, level of experience and ability and has been designed to be a bit like a journal which ‘hopefully’ sums up bouldering as a whole. So it’s not just about the climbing. It’s about the friends we make and the places we visit because of it.
