If you need a guide or know anyone who does you better get moving as there is only twenty left.

EDIT make that 19 I just got an order.

Nice one.  Do you mind me asking how many you got printed? Wondering roughly how many people are out there partaking in a niche form of a niche sport in a wee country.

I got 1120 printed. Sales were spread pretty evenly between direct from my site, Irish shops and the distributor (primarily UK). Of the direct sales I'd say roughly half went to Ireland. So maybe about 500 guides were sold to Irish climbers?

Bouldering guide about to be sold out!!! That's a great problem to have and a great verdict on the publication. Well done Dave.

I reckon you should hang onto a couple and flog em on ebay for a vastly inflated price in a few years....just before you put out a second edition  :P
