In 1995 the publishing of the Pembroke Rockfax guidebook caused quite a stir. It was the fifth Rockfax guide to be published but the first to an exclusively traditional climbing area, and the first to use full descriptions to accompany the detailed route topos. The book sold well for 10 years until it sold out in August 2005. This summer (August 2009) Rockfax have produced a new edition, using all the innovations that have been developed over the last 14 years.
Mike Robertson has co-authored it and contributed the majority of the all-important crag shots using techniques he developed in his award-winning book Deep Water. The book has been produced in the lavish style of the recent Lofoten El Chorro and Western Grit guides using huge photo-topos and full route descriptions.
