The latest edition of the Dorset Rockfax uses full-colour photo-topos in the now-familiar Rockfax style. The set of digital shots shows the stunningly beautiful Dorset coastline at its very best and, when worked into the magnificent photo-topos, they make route identification as straightforward as possible. The book contains a similar set of venues to the 2000 Rockfax, although the Devon section (first included in 1994) makes a welcome return. All the new routes since the last book have been included, and a few new areas have been added to the traditional climbing coverage at Swanage. On top of this, several of the popular bouldering areas will make their first appearance in a Rockfax. For a full list see below.

The 2000 Dorset Rockfax was the first UK guidebook to feature a full online listing of all the routes and the descriptions and grades in the latest book are based on the many thousands of comments and votes received via the Dorset Database.
