/ Swanage new BMC Guide
The new CC (not BMC!) guide has been due in "about six months" since I started climbing five years ago.
Definately can't wait ! my old Swanage guide has got damp too many times and is just a thick mess off loose pages now - it'll never go back in the plastic cover with its Portland counterpart (used only once)
Its been late 2012 since Nov 2011 on the CC site on wayback and always more than a year before then. So I guess your "6 months" was about as accurate as their "at least a year"? Having been involved in volunteer produced guidebooks I know its notoriously hard to predict the end of such a project.
I think youŽll find he did his authoring duties years ago! The credit for the delays lies elsewhere in the CC system from what I gather.
Lets hope they get it published before the 2017 Somerset guide hits the shelves.

quality just cannot be rushed
equally my old guide can't hold together much longer (and I refuse to revert to some old photocopies of the previous guide I was using waiting for that one to come out :-) )

oh sorry, i was referring to the Somerset guide. I don't think the Swanage guide is that far off now though
And you expect people to take you seriously even on this partial climbdown?... how else could it have been read??

I was indicating my low expectation for seeing the new CC Swanage guide any time soon rather than criticising the time for the Somerset guide to appear.
