We are very excited to announce the publication of a new and fully-updated edition of Eastern Grit: the most popular climbing area in the UK.

In terms of impact, this book represents another leap forward in our presentation of climbing information. Many of the crags have been re-photographed using all the latest techniques giving the most stunning set of crag photos ever taken of these amazing edges.

In terms of numbers, this edition adds 32 more pages and another 255 routes spread across all the existing crags. UKClimbing logbook feedback and votes have been checked and there are hundreds of small changes and edits throughout the book.

I hope the topo on the Rockfax app for the North Bay at Millstone, isn't the one going in the printed guidebook. It's completely wrong.....


That is a strange scaling bug in the app. We are still trying to figure out what happened there. Got a few other minor digital-only bugs to sort before rolling out an update. Book is fine.
