Beware that at first glance this guide appears to cover Cheddar Gorge and Lundy but these areas are only given an introduction - no routes are described.

Loads of excellent colour photo diagrams and stacks of great action shots, really do the area justice. The only criticiism one could make is that, at over 800g and with rather flimsy card, cover this is quite a weight to lug up a multipitch route and probably won't last that long if you don't have a guidebook cover to keep it in.
