Anyone seen it? Is it any good? How does it compare to the Ground Up Slate Guide?

I can only comment on the Ground Up slate guide which is a thing of beauty. Not sure how the RF guide compares given it's not a definitive. For me one of the best things about slate is the setting. I really like exploring the slate quarries and finding random corners, so not having the definitive would seem a shame to me.

The new slate additions to the Rockfax app are exactly that - additions to the app. It is not a printed guide and in no way tries to emulate a printed guide. It contains pretty comprehensive listing for all the crags covered and includes a number of routes that have been put up since the last printed guide.

Ah, so no book just an App. Happy that some recent additions have made it in including the new routes in Twll Mawr.

Is it possible to get the correct spelling for Tân y Ddraig (7a) it appears as 'Tan y Draig' on the RockFax databases which bears no resemblance to the Welsh language which may upset any Welsh fire breathing dragons ;-)
