/ New Rockfax - Costa Blanca
Quite pleased to see several climbs I struggled up last month have been upgraded!
Anyone know if any stores near Manchester have it in stock yet? I'd like to have a flick through before I buy. Is there much easy sport in there (5's & low 6's?

I think there are over a thousand routes at 6a and below in it.
Specialist shops such as those at climbing walls will probably have stock before more general book retailers, think it is Rockfax policy to supply these shops first.
1523 routes below 6b
You can find them all using the advanced search on the Rockfax web site here - http://www.rockfax.com/databases/expert.html?area=1012
To be fair that is actually just the nature of the system and the way the distributors Cordee work, although we fully support their efforts to keep UK specialist retailers properly supplied. As companies get bigger, getting stock into their system becomes a more lengthy procedure, especially for small suppliers.
Cheers guys. I'll have a gander next time I'm in MCC :) It'd be nice to have some winter sun climbing to look forward to later in the year!
