As the days lengthen, the weather warms up and the daffodils come into bloom, the thoughts of climbers turn away from indoor walls and out once more to the crags. And just in time for that flowering of your enthusiasm comes the latest definitive guide from the BMC to light your limestone fire.
Peak Limestone South is a blockbuster of a book that brings to life the magnificent crags of the south Peak. Sport climbing, trad climbing, bouldering, quarries, tors and caves run through its pages endlessly. Crags you know, crags you don’t; old friends and new discoveries; mighty cliffs and mini craglets.
What can you expect to find? Sizzling runouts on High Tor; mid-grade classics on Wildcat Crags; shady pleasures at Willersley Castle; Brassington's Dolomitic mini-crags; a lazy lifetime of Dovedale gems; the manyfold joys of the Manifold Valley; Beeston's pocketed symphonies; reclusive sport in the Wirksworth hinterland.
With over 60 crags, 1000s of climbs, first ascent details for both North and South Peak Limestone guidebooks, and details of trad routes, sport climbs, and punishing limestone boulder problems, you'll be crazing after this glossy tome. So get your hands on a copy now... PLS.
