Thr Rockfax Deep Water guidebook documents the major areas that have seen significant amounts of Deep Water Soloing interest and development over the last fifteen or so years.

The information is presented in the usual full colour Rockfax photo-topo style, and includes crucial advice on when and how to tackle the deep water solos, illustrated with many stunning photographs.

The main author, Mike Robertson, was one of the first climbers to ditch the rope and security of traditional protection and rely upon the safety-net of the sea. Mike has travelled far and wide, developing new routes and climbing traditional sea cliff lines in the Deep Water Solo style, and has published many articles and photographs in climbing magazines worldwide.

Deep Water Soloing has been popularised by several summer festivals and, during the warmer 'in' seasons, many of the popular venues documented in hte Rockfax Deep Water guidebbok see plenty of action from first-timers and old hands alike.

The first experience of Deep Water Soloing is for most climbers a major revelation, allowing the movement and flow of the climbing to be appreciated to the full without the encumbrance of a rack and rope, as well as the surge of excitement as progress is made above the water - if you can swim, try it!

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 dremy 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.

The majority of the destinations covered in Deep Water are distinctly exotic and are a must for the climber who loves sun, warm water and stunning routes.

The book covers so many different areas, so there is no single 'area guide'. Some of the areas are already covered by exisiting Rockfax area guides which give information and accommodation tips: Dorset (- Swanage, Lulworth and Portland), Costa Blanca, Mallorca, Sardinia.

Other areas covered briefly in the book are: North Wales, Sardinia, Croatia, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and Tasmania.

As a stand-alone comprehensive reference book, or a companion to the traditional guides to the venues, the Rockfax Deep Water guidebook, is an essential read.
