The Scottish Mountaineering Club's selected climbs guide that covers all the popular winter climbing areas in Scotland.

Ben Nevis




Northern Highlands

Creag Meaghidh

Uses the two tier grading throughout -

don't be suprised if some routes are now graded harder than when you did them using nails and a hemp-rope!

Pictures and diagrams are superb throughout and it offers sound advice. A must for the first-time Scottish Winter climber or armchair mountaineer - buy this along with your first ice screw...
