Review

Thoroughly useful guide, fully indexed, and with photographic topos, and extensive historic section.

Martin Crocker is himself responsible for a lot of the routes, and probably knows the crags better than most. Usefully, the guide is in a two-in-one format where the Avon and Cheddar guides are separate books in a climber-friendly format. (OUT OF PRINT)
