Publication of early development at Huntsham Crag and Near Hearkening Rock in the 1999 Symonds Yat guide led promptly to an explosion of exploration of the numerous sandstone outcrops and boulders throughout the northern sector of the Forest of Dean. This new guide describes the many hundreds of short climbs and bouldering routes of between 5 and 12 metres on natural sandstone that in places attains top gritstone quality.

The guide was the first to appear in the new design by Ian Smith and is printed in full colour throughout.
