Guide Book List

Below is a list of climbing guide books owned by the club, that members can borrow. 

Taking Care of Club Books

When using club books please do your best to take care of them. Although we do understand that you are taking them climbing and will not stay pristine, please treat them with respect. It is good if you can, for example, use guide book rain covers when it is wet.

Collecting and Returning Club Books

To borrow these books please contact the meet secretaries. They are for the access of the whole club so we appreciate their return shortly after you have used them.
