The Alpkit team is a varied bunch, some of us are pushing our grade whilst others have consigned themselves to not training, eating pies and chatting more than actually bouldering. But there is always something new to learn and we have all enjoyed looking at this book; it is packed with glossy photos of boulders and will illustrated with hints, tips and climbing techniques. This book is an essential read for anyone just getting in to bouldering but it also has enough for total boulder crushers to brush up on some of their skills.

The guide is written by David Flanagan, he has had a few of our bouldering mats over the years and you should spot them in this guide. He also runs The Short Span, a website all about the bouldering opportunities in Ireland.
