Guidebook to 80 graded scrambles in Snowdonia, North Wales. This revised edition of Steve Ashton's classic guide is illustrated with photo topos, and includes 16 routes selected by the updaters, as well as all the classic routes including the Snowdon Horseshoe, North Ridge of Tryfan, Bristly Ridge and the Cneifion and Cyfrwy Aretes.
Steve Ashton lived in Snowdonia for 20 years, during which he wrote several climbing and walking books to the region. The best known of these is the highly influential and now classic Scrambles in Snowdonia, which was largely responsible for reviving interest in this esoteric sport. Carl McKeating and Rachel Crolla began their hiking careers in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. They went on to walk and climb all over Europe, exploring all the major mountain ranges. In 2007, Rachel became the first woman to climb to the highest point of every country in Europe. The couple's resulting guidebook Europe's High Points was published by Cicerone in 2009.
