Boulder Britain is a select guidebook to the bouldering in the UK, perfect for a bouldering roadtrip, to keep in the car when traveling or just to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish forever (or until it comes out as a Smart Phone app). Compiled and written by Niall Grimes, this is something of what you have to look forward to.
