This second edition of the Rockfax Peak Bouldering guidebook maintains the clarity of the original 1998 book, and combines this with the highly-acclaimed Rockfax photographic style of presentation. The book covers all the main bouldering venues of the Peak District in one book, with many more low-grade problems than featured elsewhere. It also includes bouldering circuits that have proved popular in recent years. The number and range of venues more than doubles the coverage from the old book. The book appeals to all levels of ability including the aspirational top-end problems while filling the gap left by other publishers for coverage of mid-to-low grade bouldering in the Peak District. The book uses a new grading approach combining existing grades ('V' grades and Font grades) to appeal to all climbers no matter what system they are used to. It also features a novel treatment of circuits, integrating the circuit information into the text and making it easy to follow. It has more problems described than any other book.
Summer 2011 sees the publication of a new guidebook to the trade and sport routes of the many and varied cliffs scattered across Peak Limestone. This book takes the coverage in the Peak section of the well-received Northern Limestone Rockfax from 2004 (the Yorkshire section will be published later) and expands this with better photographic coverage, more cliffs and more routes. "Rockfax Peak Limestone" is the latest book to this popular area and follows on from the previous Rockfax limestone guides which have been the only real source of information for many of the crags for nearly 20 years. It will be the only single book to cover limestone for the foreseeable future.
