Guidebooks

Northern England

The book is a selected route and crag guide although it still manages to pack over 2350 routes between its covers, spread across 44 crags. The main focus is on routes of all grades from Moderate to E9, but the best bouldering is also described.
More info
Lovely crag for a sunny summers day - particularly Dental Slab in a warm breeze.
andy gittins - 10/Jun/13
A beautiful setting and a good choice if you want to escape the crowds. A longish walk in and routes are generally short. However, has some classic routes including arguably the best value Diff on Gritstone (see guide).
