This guidebook is enticingly illustrated with many stunning photographs, the majority taken by Mike Robertson. Sea cliff rock climbing referred to as Deep Water Soloing, has grown in popularity and spread its watery wings around the Globe. This brilliant guidebook “Deep Water” is a guidebook, dedicated to some of the major areas that have seen significant amounts of Deep Water Soloing interest. Mike has travelled far and wide developing routes and climbing traditional sea cliff lines in the Deep Water Solo style.
The routes in the guidebook are described in full and are attributed Sport Grades, in conjunction with the now accepted S-grade that gives an indication of the climb's seriousness with regard to height above the water and tide considerations. The difficulty of the routes included spans all grades ranging from dreamy grade 4s, 5s and 6s above the warm waters of Asia and the Mediterranean, to many hard grade 7s and 8s, some above the less-tepid seas of Northern Europe and the Southern Ocean.
This guidebook is in the usual high standard we expect from Rockfax, photo-topo style and includes crucial advice on when and how to tackle the deep water solos.
Areas covered include, Swanage, Lulworth, Portland, Devon, Cornwall, Pembroke, Scotland, Portugal, Costa Blanca, Mallorca & Australia.
