Previous editions have been rather selective in what routes to include, but this guide, or one should perhaps say pair of guides, is now definitive and includes all the climbs. "Pair of guides" because it is in two volumes, one covering Ben Nevis, and the other covering Glencoe, outlying areas and all the introductory text.

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 very good guide that is far more comprehensive in the areas it covers than the new SMC Winter Climbs West guide and is small enough to consider taking in your rucksack.

With snow, ice and mixed routes ranging from grade I introductory ascents to extreme test pieces - including the hardest traditional winter climb in the world - there are routes to suit all abilities and preferences, plus advice to help you select an appropriate route for the prevailing conditions.

By Mike Peascod. a mountaineering instructor who has worked regularly in the area for over 20 years. this is very much his home turf (frozen that is).
