The rock climbing on the North Side, which is comprehensively covered by this guide, by consensus, supersedes the original earlier development on the south side of the range. This is due to the huge variety of crags, better and wider choice of venues, each with their own unique character, and the generally more fertile terrain, providing a more picturesque and idyllic backdrop. The diversity of cliff aspects here provide a convenient choice for the climber, allowing for differing climatic conditions and sunny or shady preferences. The climbing is also surprisingly accessible in the main, almost akin to ‘cragging’ in places, with convenient roadside cliffs, as well as more remote and adventurous settings to be found deep into the heart of these ranges.
Features included within the guide:
- Detailed and accurate maps to the six major areas by Don Sargeant
