BMC Peak Limestone South

Peak Limestone South Cover, 183 kb
Peak Limestone South, the latest definitive guidebook from the BMC, is out now! This volume shines its light on the magnificent trad and sport climbs in the Matlock area: 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.

The book features all the quality and inspiration that can be packed between two covers, with over 2000 climbs on 50 crags. The crags have never looked so good with big, bright photo-topos and top-class action shots to all the crags from the A-list blockbusters to coy wooded escarpments you never knew existed. Anyone who doesn't know these crags will be in for a treat and even southern experts will discover manifold surprises.
