Staffordshire Gritstone: The Roaches - BMC (2009)
With a major overhaul, the classic gritstone guide to Staffordshire has never looked so good. All the good stuff is still here, with plenty more besides. Maps are bigger better and clearer; once-small crag topos now fill whole pages; errors have been ironed out; grades rationalised; new routes and problems have been added; bouldering sections have been made clearer. The book now has five carefully selected bouldering circuits, a recent innovation for British guides, and the Churnet Valley has had a total makeover to bring it the coverage it deserves.
