Review

The latest edition of the Dorset Rockfax uses full-colour photo-topos in the now-familiar Rockfax style. The set of digital shots shows the stunningly beautiful Dorset coastline at its very best and, when worked into the magnificent photo-topos, they make route identification as straightforward as possible. The book contains a similar set of venues to the 2000 Rockfax, although the Devon section (first included in 1994) makes a welcome return. All the new routes since the last book have been included, and a few new areas have been added to the traditional climbing coverage at Swanage.
