This is an excellent guide to ridges for England, Wales and Ireland. There is plenty in here for both beginners and more experienced climbers. All the classics are covered and the routes described are all high quality with plenty of photos to bring the descriptions to life. There are OS map excerpts shown for each route which is a nice touch. Routes for summer and winter are covered.

Like all Dan's books, the writing is light hearted with a sense of personality, yet clear and detailed. If ridges are your thing, or you want to take your hiking to the next level in the UK, this is a great guide to help light the way.

I have many guide books already but this one did identify more scrambling routes in England and Wales, and in addition gave more information on routes covered elsewhere. I found it particularly informative about ridges in Ireland as I'm not aware of these being covered in such detail elsewhere.

After purchasing and regularly using Dan Bailey's last book - Scotland's Mountain ridges - I was quite keen to get my hands on this new book covering the rest of Britain+Ireland. It's really good. I love the varied places he's found ridges to climb, there's even found one on The Isle of White.
The photographs and route descriptions are high quality and he really gets across his enthusiasm for adventure (I've noticed this in his Trail mag routes too) he isn't just going through the motions, this guy must love the outdoors. What else can I say, if you love scrambling and the outdoors then try either/both of Bailey's ridge books, you'll end up on an adventure in some place you'd never expect. 11/10

I cant praise this guide enough. Fantastic detail so you set off up your route with real confidence. The author Dan Bailey has done the careful research and offered up a variety of top mountain expeditions. Quality photographs, really clear topo diagrams coupled with friendly detailed descriptions I think adds up to a new kind of guide. In the past I have set off up steep rock with pretty minimal confidence that I am in the right place. The guide provides quality rather than quantity ensuring you can have some pretty amazing days... doing routes that wouldnt be possible or as enjoyable if using a more old fashioned guide containing a few vague diagrams and a short, hazy descriptions. Its lovely also getting a greater sense of who your guide is on such days and Dan Bailey's writing reveals a passionate enthusiast.
I recently did some of the north wales routes. Using this guide I could quickly and confidently identify the route and know in some depth what was involved and if necessary how to escape! With this confidence I was able to have some incredible experiences and look forward to many more days of adventure using this book.

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.
