A guidebook is more than just a book. It’s a roadmap of the crags, directing you to the best climbing destinations the Island has to offer. It is an important part of any climbers kit list and will not only help you choose and find routes to suit your ability, style or bravery, but also highlight any potential dangers, restrictions and considerations on the crag or route in mind.
Kevin Eloury is one of the club’s longest standing and most dedicated members. Having been the club secretary for countless years and being recognised for his contributions to climbing in Jersey as an honorary life member, he knows a thing or two about the routes in Jersey…he literally wrote the book on it. Actually, make that three.
He runs the Jersey Climbs website which provides information on rock climbing on the Island of Jersey. It also supports the Jersey Climbs guidebooks for the Island, including the Jersey Climbs Supplement (a free download) detailing amendments and known errors, many new topos, any environmental issues and the recording of new climbs.
