Review

Update of Steve Ashton's scrambling guide, with 16 new routes (and 5 excised) covering a wider area than before. Ranges from classic easy scrambles such as Crib Goch and the North Ridge of Tryfan to serious routes with short sections of rock climbing such as Bilberry Terrace on Lliwedd or Cneifion Arete in the Glyders. Clearly laid out and well illustrated, with most routes covered by photodiagrams and maps.
