The first ever selective guidebook to bouldering across Great Britain from Niall Grimes, who has been producing guidebooks for the BMC for the past 10 years (as well as contributing to almost any climbing magazine you care to mention and co-authoring the award winning Revelations).

As a selective guide, it only gives two to four pages for every area but this is more than just a coffee table book and could keep most busy for a few days at every crag. Inspiring photography, clear photo topos and up-to-date approach information mean Boulder Britain is a more than capable guidebook.

Some of the areas covered are only otherwise available in out of print guidebooks or local activist made downloads on the internet. This is the first time that all this information has been brought together. Where areas are covered in further detail in guidebooks (which are available and in print), links are given to those guides.

The following areas are covered (and more):
The honeypot gritstone of the Pennines: Stanage, Burbage, Almscliffe and Caley
Wild wave-washed weirdness on the Atlantic coast: Hartland Quay, Clodgy, Godrevy and Lynmouth
Bulging limestone powerfests: Raven Tor, Parisella’s Cave, Pantymwyn and Dinas Rock
Welsh favourites on the flanks of Snowdon: Cromlech Boulders, Sheep Pen, Wavelength and Elephantitus
The rough beauty of south-west granite: Bonehill Rocks, Hound Tor, Carn Brea and Helman Tor
Overhanging testpieces on all corners of the land: Dumbarton Rock, Forest Rock, The Bowderstone and Craig-y-Longridge
Beginner’s delights in the prettiest locations: Burbage South, RAC Boulders, Dovehole, Stone Farm
Classic coastal destinations: St Bees, Portland, Porth Ysgo and Portlethen
Feel the quality of the country’s best sandstone: Torridon, Queens Crag, High Rocks and Frodsham
Holiday gems in the mountains of the Lake District: Carrock Fell, Fisherground, Langdale Boulders and Badger Rock
Remote and unspoiled quality in the breathtaking Scottish highlands: Applecross, Glen Nevis, Loch Katrine and Reiff in the Woods
