New Definitive Stanage Guide #1© BMC, Apr 2007
The guide will be on sale at the beginning of May, and will give the perfect inspiration for the season ahead.
A brand new development, and the first for British guidebooks, is a series of bouldering circuits, mapping out collections of problems at similar levels. Three of these circuits are centered around the Causeway/Counts/Plantation areas, and two around the Apparent North area.These will lead even the most jaded Stanage devotee to areas and problems they have never seen before, giving unique and tiring days out.
Superb action photos
A great collection of action photos, both in colour and black and white, has been assembled, and perfectly illustrates the variety and quality of climbing found on this great crag. Sowing everything from Moderates, such as Grotto Slab, to the desperates, such as Mother of Pearl, never before has Stanage been shown in such glory. Many great photographers have contributed their work, including John Beatty, Pete O'Donovan, Ray Wood, Nick Smith, John Coefield, Alex Messenger, Adam Long, Gordon Stainforth, Dave Simmonite and Jamie Moss.
My Favourite Five
A random selection of the great and the good give their own personal choices of their five desert island climbs on the crag, with interesting insights into why they chose them. Contributors include Jim Perrin, Gabe Regan, Ed Drummond, Debbie Birch, Andi Turner, Lucinda Hughes, Adam Long, Johnny Dawes, Geraldine Taylor, Dave Simmonite, Seb Grieve, Offwidth and Katy Whittaker.
