Does anyone have a Dordogne guide for sale. It seems it is out of print.

Which areas are you looking at? The guide is a bit out of date and was mostly a compilation of the small booklets which you can buy at campsites / tabacs near to the crags which have been kept up to date,so unless you're on one of the more esoteric (of these admittedly already esoteric) crags then you should be able to pick up what you need on the way...

Escalades autour de Sarlat is probably the one you need. looking hard to buy, but the best bet is teh Camp site shop at Castelnaud la chapelle which is directly under le Ceou and certainly used to sell the old pamphlet and is listed as selling Escalades autour de Sarlat.

Instead of that, give Cordee, Stanfords or the Map Shop in Upton on Severn a call and ask if they can get you one.

Thanks John ill post it tomorrow. Have a great holiday. we were there last summer staying at the fantastic campsite below le Ceou and loved it. To be honest spent more time jumping and swimming in the river Ceou than climbing.

How are the bolt spacings? Are they typically French or reasonable close?

A bit on the sporty side in the main, but there has been a rebolting programme of late so it may have changed. If you're going with kids, some of the crags near Milhac (Rocher des Corbeaux) have got grid-bolted ecoles d'escalade
