Pre Order North Somerset Outcrops Vol.1

North Somerset Outcrops Vol.1 is now available for pre order.

The third title in our series of local guides for local climbers. Put together by Great Western Rock and published by Dick’s Climbing.

This is the first guidebook to give the minor crags in the Bristol area the proper, modern, full colour guidebook treatment.

Crags include:

  • Blaise Castle Gorge (aka Trym Valley Gorge)
  • Portishead Quarry
  • Goblin Combe
  • Bourton Combe
  • Sand Point

Go to Dick’s Climbing to pre order yours for delivery in early December.

Update: A one day delay at the printers has meant that the new North Somerset book is now going to be delivered to Dick’s Climbing on Friday 7th Dec.

Bristol Limestone Update

In case folk have been wondering ‘what the hell has happened to the Bristol Area Limestone Book?’, well its been on hold over the summer as I have been sorting out some business issues but more significantly have added another crag to the book and this is taking some work.

Should be out this autumn though so watch this space! (and guidebooks are always late are they not? 🤣).

Crag Database

If you’ve not found our crag database yet, head over there now and have a look!

Our crag database currently holds a complete list of all the sport climbing available in our guidebooks, and in doing so provides a quick and easy way to target the routes you want to climb.

Use the grades menu to find routes of a certain grade, or use the search function to find something more specific. Alternatively, just browse via areas or crags – Google maps locations included.

Our database will grow over time, adding more routes and details on undocumented crags that you won’t find in the guidebooks!

If you have anything to add, do get in touch.
