Review
An up to date and definitive guide book to the dozens of crags situated in the eastern French Pyrenees both in summer and winter. Virtually all of the routes are on volcanic rock and range from short 15m sport routes up to 400m+ trad routes with a big mountain feel. Being the "ultimate" guide means that it is a major tome nearly 3cms thick and a bit meaty to carry on some of the more higher routes. With big limestone and granite crags to the north and limestone and conglomerate crags to the south in Spain this is a great area little known to the Brits.
