Review

As well as taking a fresh look at the popular Symonds Yat cliffs, this 320-page guide includes the central Forest of Dean quarries and the Cotswolds and a supplement to the Sandstone Outcrops of the Forest of Dean (published 2006). The book is lavishly illustrated with maps, detailed photodiagrams for almost every crag, and many action photos. It also includes a crag selector, graded lists, chronology and index.
