Anything Else We Should Know
Passing interest in guidebooks. See 1969 guide to Heysham and Morecambe Bouldering... would have been remaindered but there was only one copy. Editor: On Peak Rock, Chew, Bleaklow and Kinder. Enjoyed proofing several Rockfax guides (all remaining mistakes are possibly but not necessarily mine). Life-time ambition completed: stop bitching and help edit/proof-read European guidebooks (Kalymnos, Best of Greece). Author: The Kalymnos Trail (2015): hiking guide to the 100km circuit of the island of Kalymnos. Route setting (bouldering circuits) at ROKT in Brighouse.
