    Description: This is the first definitive sport climbing guide for Scotland, written by 18 of the leading Scottish sport climbers. The guidebook includes 1300 routes, from grades 3 to 9a spread across over 100 crags from the Central Belt to Shetland and Arisaig to Aberdeen. It is lavishly illustrated with action photos for each main crag, easy-to-use maps and photo diagrams, and a colour-coded route grading system. The guide covers sport climbing as well all Scotland's world-class 'dry tooling' routes. The landscape format is designed to lay open at the crags, and the cover flaps contain useful reference information for those new to sport climbing as well as climbers visiting from other countries. Sport climbing has a wider audience than traditional climbing; with quick drying accessible crags, it suits the busy modern climber and the family-friendly climbing day.

Scottish Rock: The Best Mountain  Crag  Sea Cliff And Sport Climbing In Scotland: South Volume 1

Scottish Rock: The Best Mountain Crag Sea Cliff And Sport Climbing In Scotland: South Volume 1


Category: Books
Description: Volume 1 of Scottish Rock covers a proliferation of Scottish crags up to the natural demarcation of the Great Glen. They are easier to access than most in Volume 2 and present infinite variety. There are selected climbs in Arran, Arrochar Area, Mull & Iona, Glen Coe & Glen Etive, Ardgour & Ardnamurchan, Ben Nevis & Glen Nevis, Central Highlands, Cairngorms, Easter Ross. New to this second edition are numerous grade adjustments, improvements in descriptions, some topo corrections and new topos. Several less popular crags and cliffs have been removed, freeing up additional space for the inclusion of over 120 additional routes. There are also over 60 new photos. From the foreword by Hamish Mac Innes:- If you have an ambition to do all the climbs in these two Scottish Rock guides I think you'd better schedule time off in your next life. This labour of Gary's has been of gargantuan proportions. Those of you who use the guides will benefit by his dedication and the sheer choice offered; if you divide the retail price of these by the number of good routes you'll realise this is a bargain. The author has been a long-time advocate of selected climbs and the use of photographs to illustrate both climbs and action and this principle has been used throughout these two volumes. It gives the climber a push to get up and do things. The list seems endless and if you succeed in doing half of them you'll be a much better climber and know a lot more about Scotland - have a good decade!
