Peak Limestone - South


Author Mike Browell – Published British Mountaineering Council (1987)ISBN 0-903908-26-3

This Guidebook is now out of print, and unavailable

One of a trio of lime guides. Well received and still useful given the relative lack of development, particularly in Dovedale and the Manifold Valley. However lacks new routes in Matlock/Cromford/Wirksworth area. Typically well produced by an experienced crew. The replacement could be a good way off if no one volunteers to take it on!
