Hope you don't mind me using this to contact you. Thanks for the extensive coverage; optimistic it will develop well over the coming month. Where can the competition gallery be viewed?

Thanks alan, could you put it into the in the premier post too please? guess it's the weird looking gallery in the photos page just now?
Initial lack of action is not a suprise. Always thought that getting folk to pose them this spring would be the best chance for real quality. fingers x'd for a storming month.
cheers for now,
Mike

In reply to UKC News: Does anyone know when this new guide comes out?
Mike Lates - on 05 May 2009
In reply to tommakin: recent feedback (last couple of days) indicates the end of the year which is a bit gutting for climbers and authors. It does allow plenty of scope for taking action shots through the spring/early summer and new routes on acres of unexplored terrain to make it in for recording; when this rain stops...
Thanks to all for current contributions,
Mike

In reply to mike lates:

I'm confused. Is the new guide the Climbs guide or the Scrambles one, or both?

In reply to craigloon:

There are new editions of both due this year, but Mike's competition is for the Climbs one.
