The new-look Rockfax Website

The new-look Rockfax website

As any old users reading this will realised, we have completely relaunched our web site with a new look and many new features. This is the first major redesign since March 2004 and is long overdue!

The main aim of the new site is to focus on the publications and make it easier to find our books and MiniGUIDES, something I freely acknowledge was poor on the old site. We have a full list of current publications available which you can filter by region, style and author. The books are displayed all at once on clear pages which enable them to be seen, searched and selected easily.

The online shop has had a complete overhaul and all our payments now go through PayPal which means you can pay via your PayPal account or credit/debit card. The new shop also has many more functions that will enable us to reward loyal customers and offer deals on bulk purchases. Please Note: If you have purchased a MiniGUIDE prior to September 2011 and would like to download it again then please Request a MiniGUIDE download.

Another major change is the vastly improved accommodation section. Ever since we set this up as a tagged on feature on the old web site back in March 2004 it has been extremely popular for travelling climbers and advertisers alike. The new version makes it much easier to see what is available and where it is. If you are interested in getting your information listed on there then contact us.

We have also removed banner advertising from third parties and we have no more Google Ads. The only ads in the top bar now are our own static image ads pointing to other areas of the site.

The Databases Section looks slightly different but is essentially the same as the old system. We have plans to work on this in the near future.
We hope you like the new-look site and please feel free to send us your thoughts and comments.
