Shetland Climbing

A definitive climbing guide to the Shetland Isles - largely seacliffs though there are a few inland crags. Full colour photodiagrams.
The first dedicated guidebook to the most northerly islands of the UK. From hillside granite outcrops to volcanic sea cliffs and inland gneiss boulders, Shetland offers quite a varied climbing experience as you could hope for, though it's mostly seacliffs. Don't expect to bump into many other climbers! 
This guide covers over 50 crags spread around the islands, with over 800 routes between them. Included are the main trad climbing areas and sea stacks, plus an overview of the best bouldering venues (only a few pages, but a good introduction).
Full colour throughout with good photodiagrams.
