Climbers' Club Guide to South Devon
Rob Greenwood takes a look at the latest guidebook in the Climbers' Club series, the long awaited update to Nick White's 1995 South Devon and Dartmoor Guide.
"If you have an ambition to do all the climbs in these two Scottish Rock guides I think you'd better schedule time off in your next life. This labour of Gary's has been of gargantuan proportions. Those of you who use the guides will benefit by his dedication and the sheer choice offered; if you divide the retail price of these by the number of good routes you'll realise this is a bargain."
These guides will take you to some extraordinary places to experience some of the best rock climbing and scrambling around. Explore the long almost alpine length routes and classic ridges on Ben Nevis, bag your first sport routes at Weem or Glen Ogle or chill out on a range of short immaculate crags by the beach on the idyllic Erraid. From convenient roadside crags to remote Cairngorm corries, they're all here.
