Rockfax Pokketz Guidebooks

by Mick Ryan Whilst some guidebooks are getting bigger and fatter, Rockfax are downsizing some of their publications with a new guidebook line called, Pokketz. To quote: “The Pokketz Format – A6 in size, weighing less than 150 grams and only 7mm thick this small and portable guidebook will fit in your ´pokketz´. Instead of concentrating on regions or rock types, the Pokketz books will cover grade bands and/or different climbing styles. The Peak series will include limestone routes as well as gritstone and will be presented in a horizontal page format to maximize the information packed between the covers. Future books will make maximum use of the format in covering sea cliff and multi-pitch routes where guidebook portablility becomes an important consideration. ” Rockfax website
