In response to requests from so many climbers who love Mizugaki, we published English edition of Mizugaki Climbing Guidebook, that is the first English guidebook of Japanese climbing area ever. This guidebook introduces trad routes and sport routes of Mizugaki, which is one of the greatest granite climbing area in Japan, along with beautiful impressive photographs and the comments of climbers from Mizugaki, which make this book the most excellent climbing guidebook in Japan.
For this English Edition, we selected the most popular and high-quality areas from original Japanese guidebook, while highlighting the range of styles available at Mizugaki. Of course, we add the new routes, such as “Thousand Days of Lapis Lazuli” and “SPARK”, FA by Keita Kurakami, which were developed after Japanese guidebook had been published,
In addition, journals contributed by James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini, who have visited Mizugaki many times, Yuji Hirayama and Keita Kurakami are also newly inserted.
We carefully designed the route maps and route descriptions so that anyone can understand in the same way as Japanese version. The approach to Mizugakiyama Natural Park and each crags is also described as easily as possible.
We hope that this guidebook may let all climbers around the world know the attraction of the Mizugaki.
