A fully researched and rewritten full colour guidebook to this most hallowed of cliffs. Although the author Nick Dixon is famed for his very hard first ascents and repeats, he has also sought to raise the profile of many of the easier classics. Route descriptions are clear and concise, and supported by nearly twenty photodiagrams lovingly prepared by Don Sargeant. All known winter routes are included, with their first ascent details and some photographs.
Instead of the usual Historical, the extended Ascents Anthology has been expanded further with historical commentary by the author and numerous quotes and opinions on the routes from a number of Cloggy enthusiasts. The book gets off to a gripping start with Neil Gresham's riveting and personal account of his ascent – the third – of The Indian Face. The guide also includes winter climbs and is rounded off with an index.
