/ Glen Nevis bouldering guide?
Does anyone know if there is a bouldering guide and if so we're can I buy it.
There was one, several years out of print, by Tom Ballard whose sad and untimely death on Nanga Parbat has just been announced. I don't know of another. You might find it second hand.
There's no isbn number on the Glen Nevis guide but the publisher seems to be PrintSmith (Lochaber) Ltd with telephone number 01397 700330 and an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org at the publication date of 2005
The same areas are covered in some detail in John Watson's Stone Country "Boulder Scotland 3rd edition isbn 978-0-9928876-1-2 and website www.stonecountry.co.uk
I think I saw one in Nevisport in Fort William just before new year, probably as likely a place as any to have some copies.
Could try giving needlesports a ring, I've seen it in there in the past.
There's a page for nevis bouldering Nevis Bouldering which has most of the info from the new stone country guide and a few new things. The stone country guide covers the Glen pretty well. But I never managed to get a copy of Tom Ballards guide to compare. Another source of info might be 3 wise monkeys mapping effort, but I don't know whether that is still being worked on
Dan Varian recently made the third ascent of Transcendence E8 6c, one of Northumberland's proudest and most fearsome routes, which has resisted attempts by some of the country's finest climbers for twenty five years.
