The Ridges of England, Wales and Ireland: Scrambles, Rock Climbs and Winter Routes
The Ridges of England, Wales and Ireland: Scrambles, Rock Climbs and Winter Routes
by Dan Bailey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.36

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive book, 1 Sept. 2009
This book is ideal if you want to get out there and do some really impressive but technically manageable routes. It shows really clearly where the climbs are and the route to be followed, photos and topos. So many guides show such sketchy details in a situation where you so want to be sure.
I think this book is an example of how advanced digital photography is helping to show how really incredible days are possible even for the relative newcomer to outdoor climbing.
The author writes in a particularly accessible way... a good companion to find those 'not to be missed routes' and guide you up some once in a lifetime ridges.
I have followed some of the north wales routes and have been introduced to a whole new world. The book is so clear you can really study the route and potential escapes before you even arrive. Hopefully such guides spell an end to that awful situation of trying to start up some gnarly route without being really sure you are even in the right place. I thoroughly recommend this book to people who are into serious scrambling and climbing and want to take these skills to a range of amazing areas.
