Does anybody have a Malta / Gozo guidebook sitting on their shelves that they would be willing to sell (or rent). We're heading over there for some sport climbing at the start of April and it would be great if we could get a guidebook before then.

Cheers

Doug

Me. Where are you based? I'll swap you it for something. What you got? Anything. Doesn't need to be climbing related.

Brilliant. I live up on the isle of lewis (so a handover is unlikely, right?). Below is a shopping list for you if you want a swap. Otherwise just let me know a price and I can paypal you for it?

1) bradt guides - zanzibar or uganda

2) lonely planet guides - morocco, cuba or spain

3) rock climbing guidebooks - spain (costa blanca), scottish sport, highland outcrops, andalucia, scottish rock south, lowland outcrops.

Any of those you fancy?

I met a couple who had hired a copy of the slightly older comprehensive guide from the climbing shop on Malta.

I have the new sport book that was fine for a sport climbing visit. Sorry I want to hang onto it though.

Aye I saw that you could hire it. We'll do that if we can't get our hands on one beforehand - keen to spend a bunch of evenings obsessing over routes I'll not be able to climb.

Cheers for the info though.

Its a very dog eared copy and you have to give them a big deposit.

The most significant thing for us that the Sport Climbing guide was missing was any information on the big sea-level traverses. These were great.

No, though I have an issue with that email address. I can send it you. Its a real pain to get hold of out there as there aren't many climbing shops and it took us quite some time to track it down.
