Winter Climbs in the Cairngorms Description

  • Brand : Cicerone

  • Years of experience are evident in this handy pocket sized winter climbing guide to the Cairngorms (including the Northern Corries), Lochnagar and Creag Meagaidh.
     
    The granite peaks of the Cairngorms have extensive areas of high plateau and four peaks over 4000ft, while Creag Meagaidh is noted for its classic ice climbs. The guide also covers the well-known routes on the magnificent cliffs of Lochnagar and Creag an Dubh Loch, as well as the more remote and serious climbs on the corries of Braeriach and Beinn a'Bhuird.
     
    The major climbing venues of the Cairngorms have some of the finest winter routes in Britain. Some are easily accessible, others extremely remote, but the climbing is always superb. From long, varied routes to short, technical tests and a range of pure ice climbs as well as mixed routes to rival any others in the country, the Cairngorms is an exceptional range with something to suit all winter climbers.
     
    Loads of photodiagrams showing positions of buttresses and routes and plenty of action photos as well as some good wet weather reading (though why on earth one should want that...?) make for a good guide that is far more comprehensive than the SMC selected guide and dispenses with having to carry around a load of info on rock climbs (as you do with the SMC definitive guides). Over 900 icefall, buttress, gully and ridge routes are described at all grades from I to very hard indeed.
     
    This is not a fully definitive guide, but does include every route most people will want to do, and more.This is not a fully definitive guide, but does include every route most people will want to do, and more.
