Topic - North Wales Bouldering Guide Review - Mick Ryan Spills the Beans

About 7 years ago Simon Panton reviewed the North Wales Limestone Rockfax for Climber magazine and pulled no punches. His assessment was pretty savage and, on refelection, he did have a point. Now the tables have been turned and Mick Ryan has given his assessment of Simon's North Wales Bouldering guidebook.

Don't expect another insipid - "nice book, didn't like the action photos much and the grade of this problem is wrong" style of review though; this is something completely different. Mick has examined all aspects of the guidebook, of our current attitude towards bouldering and the documenting of bouldering information. He analyses Simon's reasons for producing the book in 2 languages and assess what impact this might have on other guidebook producers. He looks at the grading systems and gives a full-scale appraisal of this book, its layout, its photography and its possible impact.
