We are about to head to the mount & I thought I would finally stop borrowing the guidebook & buy my own copy - when lo & behold I stumbled across:
ARAPILES SELECTED CLIMBS 3RD ED 2016
Availability: In stock
By Simon Mentz & Glenn Tempest.
What climber has not heard of Mt Arapiles? This is the Arapiles climbing guide to have. This is the new third 2016 edition of the iconic Simon Mentz / Glenn Tempest climbing guide to Mt Arapiles. Full colour, completely revised and updated, this selected climbs guide now covers 1300 classic climbs with 158 topos.
This is a marvellous guidebook to an iconic area. The book is easy to use with well produced photo topos, has loads of information on the history of the area, beautiful photography and the descriptions are emotive, giving the reader a real flavour of the individual nature of the routes.
This book will entertain and inspire the reader and is definitely still the best book to buy if you are either planning your first trip to the mount or a well seasoned veteran.
Full colour, completely revised and updated.
A selected climbs guide to rockclimbing at Mt Arapiles.
Third edition, Open Spaces Publishing, 2016.
ISBN 978-0-9875264-2-7. Softcover, 1300 routes, 158 topo photographs, 400 pages.

Is this Chockstone's best kept secret or does everyone know about it & I'm just an out of touch armchair climber?

For the record - the Sydney Kent St climbing shops have either the green 2nd edition or in several cases only 444.
Last I checked the north shore gyms have the new grampians guide but not Araps.

It certainly hasn't been as widely discussed and anticipated as the 2nd edition from my perspective....
