As something of a closet Peak District scrambler myself I had been thinking there was a place for a guide like this in the Cicerone range for some time. I have to say this is exactly what I was hoping for. There are many entertaining little scrambles to be found in the Dark Peak, the trick being to blend a few of them together into a fine day on the hill. The problem has always been the time and hard yards needed to discover the best routes and how to link them together. This book essentially solves that problem.

Having done many of the routes in the book I can confirm the accuracy of the ratings and route descriptions, and I am looking forward to seeing the 2 and 3 star routes I have yet to do. And even some of the routes I have done, there are alternative finishes described to explore.

In summary, this is an excellent new book for any adventurous walker who fancies getting off the beaten tracks of the Dark Peak and finding new and surprising ways of reaching the same places, and with a little adventure on the way.

I have walked and rock-climbed in the Peak District for years but had never thought there could be any connection between the two, then this excellent book appeared. I had thought of following stream beds like Abbey Brook as an alternative route on to the moors but I had not thought of finding rocky stream beds to scramble up. I have now sampled quite a few of the routes described and can vouch for the gradings used. I have been with walkers with no climbing experience up some of the Grade 1 routes and they enjoyed them. I have also been up some of the Grade 2 and 3 routes and, as a rock climber, found them easy enough and will be introducing my non climbing friends to them also, I do not expect any problems. I think the authors are to be congratulated on the amount of time and effort that must have gone into the production of this now indispensable guide.

When you walk in an area regularly you can tend to go over the same routes again and again. These books are brilliant for showing new places which you can easily overlook, it is good to look through the pages and see places / scrambles that I already know so it shows I've not walked round with my eyes closed. Its great that 1:25k maps are used to help with route finding. I'm sure I'll use this a lot.

Really good quality book and came very quickly to say I opted to go for the free delivery service, I bought it for my Dad and he really likes it, good choice for someone who is a regular walker and would like alternative ways rather than walking/hiking to reach their destination. Recommended!!!

Agree with others! Users of this guide may like to know that details of new routes are posted on the Cicerone website in their "Scrambling" section. There's also an important correction to Route 15 that will help in locating it properly.

As a new comer to scrambling, I have found this book to be excellent in every way, and have just enjoyed my first outing together with my son. An excellent and clear guide book. Can't wait to get out again!
