Nice job, and Monty might notice we have changed the colour of the route lines to make them easier to see!
Really...! That's great. Thanks chaps. I hope the other 99.9% of the population can see them as well...
I did mention to Alan in an email when he sent me a sample of the new lines, that the most striking example of not being able to see red on grey was the front of my old Pembroke guide - I couldn't even see my own name! I'll upload a scan - see what you make of it...
We are using the same system for the North Wales Classics book now as well, and it does make the lines a lot clearer, they are also thinner though which means you get a little more crag detail too.
I did notice that Grimer has been using the two-tone route lines since his first BMC books, so it isn't really an innovation we can claim.
