Guidebook for South Wales, UK.

With over 1,240 problems documented and grading ranging from 3 - 8C every boulderer young or old, experienced or just starting out will be able find something for every ability.

This guide has been designed a bit like a journal which 'hopefully' sums up bouldering as a whole. So it's notjust about the climbing it's about the friends we make and the placed we visit because of it.

So there are loads of extra bits in there from warming up, to poems, to widlife, mini-comics and even areas for you to make notes as you find new places as you adventure further afield.
