/ gower guide book. which one?
This be the one:
Stuart Llewelyn and Matt Woodfield
Nothing beats a little bit of harmless self-promotion! ;)
Seriously though, Gower Rock is a very good selective guide. Matt and Stuart are local lads and they've done a cracking job. http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=5153
I would also second the advice to only buy the definitive guide (which is a good read in itself if you like dry-as-dust humour) if you're intending to climb there a lot.
I have the definitive guide and its ok as long as you have a map to locoate the crags, but yeah I much prefer more modern photo topo guides :)
Its funny how easily you forget but with most the old style guides it used to take a couple of visits to many crags before you got your bearings. Everything was left of something else!
The new Gower guide looks great, but what does one do if one wants to climb at Ogmore too?
the person with matt in his name isnt one of the authors, different matt. I am one of them though. thanks for the kind words chaps on our book.
For ogmore buy the swmc guide. Its unlikely youll climb both venues on the same day?
If you want to climb at Ogmore, you can buy the SWMC guide (and as I'm on the SWMC committee, I guess I should push it, especially as we've only got a few hundered copies left) or you could go to the SWMC wiki and look at the excellent topos for Ogmore:
