Who could resist a good ridge? Stony tightropes stringing the peaks, gap-toothed like jawbones, chiselled crests spearing out of sea surge or corrie shadow ? these are the stuff of climbing dreams.This book complements Cicerone?s popular Scotland?s Mountain Ridges, describing and celebrating the best routes of this type across the rest of Britain and Ireland, and bringing them all together in one place for the first time. Ranging from balmy (and occasionally barmy) seaside trips and roadside quick fixes to strenuous snowy days in the high hills, the selection described here reflects the diversity of mountaineering and traditional climbing in our islands, and the dazzling patchwork of contrasting landscapes in which these adventures can be enjoyed.There?s a new adventure for everyone here ? scrambling beginners and experienced climbers alike.

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.
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.
