As well as taking a fresh look at the popular Symonds Yat cliffs, the 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.

This new supplement from the Climbers’ Club attempts to pull together all known or reported developments that have taken place since the publication of the three definitive guides to the Wye Valley area starting back in 2007. Four new crags: Mounton Valley Rocks, near Chepstow; Plumweir Cliff above Shorn Cliff, and Bailey Quarry and the Celestial Walls near Symonds Yat are also included.
