Just got my copy of "Over the Moors" (a christmas gift), and I'm a bit disappointed.

The book is fantastic and the content is great but the fact that the pages aren't in order is a bit frustrating.
What's going on?
Do I have a duff copy or what?
Was there a problem with the print run?

In mine the pages jump from 256 Tintwistle Boulders to 289 Bareholme but the "missing" section is found later between 576 and 577. Is this just a quirk? it's messing with my OCD.

How can I get a "correct" copy? I can't return it as it's a gift and I don't have a receipt?

Any help from you friendly BMC chaps would be gratefully received

Intriguing... my page numbers are fine! I'd get in touch with the nice people at the BMC. They don't usually bite!

This sometimes happens but your local friendly climbing shop (assuming your local climbing shop is friendly, your friendly local shop is a climbing shop and your friendly climbing shop is local) could well just swap it over for a good one for you.

Might be something to do with karma...you get the feeling Laddow is a bit of a 'missing' crag these days. You don't find many crags where some 6 inches of turf rip and the rock underneath is polished... I wonder, were someone's Kinder Great Buttress pages missing as well?? On a similar subject I like the fact that some of the pages with steep roof bouldering at Dimmingsdale were printed upside down in my freeby.

In reply to popebenedictus: It's not normal for pages to be out of order like that so obviously you do have a duff copy. Contact the BMC and they will sort it out for you.

I hope not, my last involvement with this guide involved a scary rock-fall in Brockholes Quarry while checking routes with Mr Tan

I think I was there that day as well. Not a lot of fun, was it?

I find climbing with Mr Tan is always loads of fun, even if the rock you are climbing sometimes needs a disclaimer.
