Review
Climbers club guide. Pebble pulling. [n0ph33r]

Publication of early development at Huntsham Crag and Near Hearkening Rock in the 1999 Symonds Yat guide led to an explosion of exploration of the numerous sandstone outcrops and boulders throughout the northern sector of the Forest of Dean. This guide describes about a thousand short climbs and bouldering routes of between 5 and 12 metres on natural sandstone that in places attains top gritstone quality.

184 pages of text, illustrations and colour photographs, including a historical, first ascents list, index …and list of project for the next generation!
