Lancashire Rock

Author Niall Grimes and Les Ainsworth
Published British Mountaineering Council (2016)



A huge tome (1.3 kg), the result of the writers' desire for all the climbs to be in one book and the BMC guidebook commitee's desire to drag the script and contents into the 20th century. A source of many sizest jokes, the guide nevertheless brought back attention onto an important climbing area, although the star system is peculiar to Lnacashire indicating the potential quality of a route, rather than its quality on first aquaintance!
