Climbing:2012 is Keith's eighth rock climbing calendar and it's been totally redesigned for 2012. The fresh new layout gives a significantly larger footprint (around 30% bigger) for both the calendar images and the date grid.
Included within Climbing:2012 is the A2-sized 2012 Year Planner and Poster. The 2012 Year Planner features Leah Crane cranking down in the Churnet Valley on Simple Simon (Font 7b) at Wright's Rock whilst the 2012 Poster captures Steve McClure on the first ever on-sight of Dawes Rides a Shovel Head (E7/8 6c) on Raven Crag in Langdale.
The front cover (and Mr August title) this year goes to Sam Whittaker on Midgard Serpent (F7b+) in Thor's Cave in the Manifold Valley. The rock architecture in Thor's is just stunning – more Costa del Spain than Costa del Manifold! And speaking of the Costas Climbing:2012 also features Chris Sharma on one of his latest projects – a 45deg overhanging wall at Margalef.
From around the UK there's trad. action from the uber quality sea-cliff that is Lower Sharpnose and the headwall in the Avon Gorge. North West action comes in the shape of Pigeon Cave down below the Marine Drive, Dinbren in the Clwyd and then Langdale in the Lakes. Pennine action for Climbing:2012 comes from the Secret Garden, Robin Hood Stride, Cowperstone, Thor's Cave and Wright's Rock. Finally, there's a shot from the World Cup Bouldering comp.
