Brings together 7 other guidebooks into one cover. Highlights a number of great crags that have never been popular due to low-star count in the BMC guides, and not featuring in the selected guide.The book covers around 800 of the West Country?s most popular and highest calibre climbs, which span the full spectrum of climbing styles and grades; from committing multi-pitch sea cliff routes, to easy-going inland sport climbs. The rock ranges from the moorland and sea cliff granites of Dartmoor and West Penwith, through the geological weirdness of North Devon and Cornwall, to the multitude of limestone?s on parade in Devon, Somerset, Avon and Dorset.West Country Climbs will be an essential reference book to the climbing available in the region. The guidebook will appeal to the holidaying or regular visitor to the West Country whilst also offering a vast amount of up-to-date and inspirational coverage for the local climber.

The volume is however unbiased in it's coverage and as the title would suggest is more breadth than depth (e.g; 10 pages for Chudleigh, 4 pages for Cheddar) but gives a good insight for all those areas you may not have visited via excellent panoramic photo's that are so vivid they actually inspire a visit to Cornwall. There is good coverage of sea-cliffs in this volume (e.g; Culm Coast 36 pgs, West Penwith 86 pgs, Torbay 18 pgs)
Having grown up with the Climbers Club 'South Devon and Dartmoor' which guided me in my early climbs it really beggars belief how far climbing guides have come on. When I look at pics of the areas there is no doubt as to exactly where the climbs are. The usual Rockfax legend (key) pervades through-out with good diagrams to guide you on the walk-in (I still wish they'd prodce a symbol for 'well-protected' routes though! ala 'On Peak Rock')
A good balance between breadth and depth and a must for the casual visitor to the South-West or any one contemplating a visit certainly worth considering for a regular too.
A well thought out and updated guide book which has opened the door to even more crags and routes that I was unaware of. I can cetainly say "money well spent".
