Looks good. I like the QR codes on the maps ^

Haven't had the chance to look through it fully yet, but it seems amazingly comprehensive.

No graded ticklist - Boo!
Inclusion of a few random mid-Wales crags is a curio

Top 50 graded ticklist is there.

Presumably, not enough people have it yet. Surely people are not too scared to say...?

In reply to jezb1: I had a good look through the book in a gear shop at the weekend. I was genuinely tempted to buy it before seeing it as all my friends have North wales rock and I thought it may be good to have something different. First thing that struck me is that many of the photo's - especially in the Pass - did not seem of the greatest quality. A lot of blurred features and lines. This is something that Rockfax are usually great at. It seemed that photos were taken on less than perfect days and the book suffered as a result. That was my honest first impression.

That sounds like you may have been looking at a dodgy copy. The quality is pin sharp throughout the book - we are really happy with it. You can virtually see the individual holds on the Corner topo!
