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.
This May will see the publishing of the first single volume guidebook to Peak Limestone to have hit the shelves for many years. The last edition of Northern Limestone included much of Yorkshire too, this time round the Peak District get its own dedicated coverage. The book features expanded photographic coverage of the classic venues of Stoney, Chee Dale and Water-cum-Jolly plus all the southern crags around Matlock, Dovedale and the Manifold Valley.
The many routes that have been put up in recent years are included, plus a reassessment of the classics. On top of this there are a number of recently developed quarries that have become a magnet for sport climbers, including the ever-popular Horseshoe and Harpur Hill. The striking crag-shots are backed up with full route descriptions and a superb set of action pictures that should inspire even the most jaded grit guru.
