I think that Doug Kerr was the last author of the guide. He let his site expire, as he didn't want to continue maintaining the guide. I did offer to host the guide for him, but for some reason I can't recall he didn't want to do that. It would be nice if whoever holds the copyright agreed that the guide could be redistributed on line, as it doesn't look as though another guide is likely to be published in the near future.
I suspect for the real esoterica, people putting the cliffs on 27crags.com and crowd-sourcing it to get that as accurate and up-to-date as possible is the answer until some enterprising Brummy wants write a new version of the guide. I took a bunch of photos from Southstone the other day so I should put my money where my mouth is and 'topo' that cliff on 27crags!
Good points. However, Pontesford is a nice beginners crag in an easily accessible area with no, or few, similar crags nearby. There's not likely to be a raft of new E10's put up there. At the moment there is no guidebook available unless you know someone who has an old copy, or the pdf version.
