Cicerone’s ‘Winter Climbs in The Cairngorms’ is also a selective guidebook but for its limited area it includes more routes than the SMC, and it covers more venues. For example Garbh Choire Mor is in the SMC definitive guidebook but is excluded from its selected winter climbs, yet Cicerone presents over 20 routes in the lower and upper corries from Grade I to VI,7 and many are starred quality. Content is a personal considered choice of routes deemed worthwhile by the authors, Allen Fyffe and Blair Fyffe, on the basis of their wide experience of winter climbing in Scotland and their intimate knowledge of the ever progressive climbing scene.
‘Winter Climbs in The Cairngorms’ is a father and son team effort. Allen has over 40 years experience and in 2002 he received an MBE for services to mountaineering. He is well respected for guidebook writing, instructional books, articles to magazines and journals and media participation in addition to his pioneering of new routes.Read more ›
