The first single volume guidebook to Peak Limestone to have hit the shelves since 1992. The last edition of Northern Limestone Rockfax (Now out of Print), included much of Yorkshire too, this time round the Peak District gets its own dedicated coverage, with Yorkshire to follow. The book features expanded photographic coverage of the classic venues of Stoney Middleton, Cheedale and Water-cum-Jolly plus all the southern crags around Matlock, Dovedale and the Manifold Valley.

The many routes that have been put up in recent years are included, plus a reassessment of the classics. On top of this there are a number of recently-developed quarries that have become a magnet for sport climbers, including the ever-popular Horseshoe and Masson Lees. The striking crag-shots are backed up with full route descriptions and a superb set of action pictures that should inspire even the most jaded grit guru.

Very uninspiring

Just received a copy of this guide from R+R, and I'd have to say whilst I have yet to use it in anger it certainly is one of the least inspiring new guides I have seen for some time and certainly not as visually good as its predecessor, Northern Limestone
