Product Description

Review

Review for 'Stone Country' from John Gill:"This is perhaps the best bouldering guide I've ever seen. It is entirely literate (somewhat at odds with a great deal of what is published in this country), there is a lack of grading emphasis (how refreshing!), there is much interesting philosophy woven into the fabric of the text (unusual and highly appreciated), and the B&W photos are among the best I've ever seen - sharp and clear, showing form over mere image. A marvelous book."John Gill --John Gill

Format: Paperback
Very handy book, can be easily put in the rucksack and stays open to the right page for use in-situ. Very clear description of the paths to approach the boulders and great drawings of the exact position.
Great buy, great fun!

First a review of the book. It is compact enough to fit neatly in a rucksack but is wide enough to stay open fairly easily. It covers a large number of areas with lots of clear pictures showing both attempts at and highlighted routes. Moreover, descriptions of both the particular crag or boulder and the routes themselves lead to a very comprehensive guide.

Unfortunately, this is not enough to counteract an issue of poor printing leading to probably a quarter of the pages being printed too high. This meant that the otherwise useful colour coded area names were cut off.
