This looks brilliant! Great idea. I want one.
Oh, but surely that's too mich to ask ;-)

The only thing that worries me is that if I leave my pre-christmas copy at the crag, it's got your name written in the front not mine :)
This book looks like the perfect Christmas present. Fab photos, and packed with routes and Niall's classic humour.
(Where is my cheque Grimer?)
Hi mark, no, no conflict. Both guidebooks I suppose but this book is not in my BMC remit, and I have spent the last 7 years doing it all in my spare time (which is why I've not had much spare time). Even as i type this I'm on my lunch break :-)
It looks exceptionally beautifully produced. Congrats.
To clarify, most venues get a double-page spread with photo, maps and topos with somewhere between 15 and 30 problems. Some get more.
Others, for various reasons, just get approach info, photo etc, without problems detailed individually.
Scotland is mostly the latter, often picking out a few plums, but more interested in getting you to the venue. See Wolfcrag and Glen Clova in the other sample spread as an example.
Looks good. Are those page numbers correct for Burbage North West and Bridge?
Do you mean the way they are all 324? It's just that they are all included in the Burbage North section, which begins on 324.
No doubt there are massive errors in there. Might give a prise to whoever finds the best one.
Guaranteed Christmas delivery and free postage and packing offer extended to 14th of December. See www.boulderbritain.com Get it while it's hot.
"Might give a prise to whoever finds the best one." 'Aprise' apart: A grimer typo discussion night out with Moff ?;-)
