Lancashire Bouldering Guide

3 reviews   |  

The Lancashire Bouldering Guide is the very first guidebook to the bouldering in Lancashire and Greater Manchester.

Covering 47 venues in three unique areas: the Bowland fells, the southern quarries and the East Lancashire moors, the Lancashire Bouldering Guide also provides full coverage of classic venues like Brownstones, Craig Y Longridge and Thorn Crag, and detailed coverage of many previously undocumented crags.

With fantastic action photos, full colour photo topos and maps for every crag, this book is designed for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned boulderer. Beginners will find plenty to do at amenable grades - whether they hanker for big days out in scenic locations or just friendly venues ideal for after-work cragging. Those in search of sterner challenges will not be disappointed - there are hundreds of problems in the harder grades, which stretch all the way up to Font 8B.

Robin Mueller is a freelance writer and obsessive boulderer. He was born in Lancashire and has been bouldering on red rose rocks for nearly twenty years. He has climbed almost all the problems in the guidebook, making this one of the most well-researched guidebooks in existence.

Lancashire boulder insight

I've been looking for a good guide that gives me great areas to go and check out near by to where I live and this manual fits in perfectly with the surrounding areas and the days and times I have off work, so was a great find tha is guys

Labour of love

Robin is to be congratulated for ferreting out hundreds of problems. Some are lowball nonsensities (eg the daftest, grindiest problem in the world, Cow's Mouth - thank you!) some are gold-plated classics. The book also highlights a generous list of projects, rather than hiding them away. If Blackstone for example were in the Peak, people would be all over it.

Its here!

Its great to finally have a Lancs bouldering guide. Good photos and loads of previously undocumented problems to go at. I'm looking forward to many days trying it out.
