With the arrival in 2001 of “Peak Gritstone East”, climbing guides changed forever - descriptions accompanied by 'old-style' line diagrams were replaced with full-colour topos with the routes marked on them; it proved to be a very effective concept. This third edition has been expanded with more coverage of the main cliffs and the inclusion of many of the minor venues that were left out last time round. It is now comes out at a massive 560 pages with over 4000 routes!
All the cliffs have been rephotographed in glorious detail, every page has been redesigned and all the descriptions and grades have been checked against the UKClimbing databases and updated where appropriate. The book includes a superb set of inspiring action photographs from some renown photographers plus a plethora of graded lists. It is full of the kind of intimate knowledge that only comes from many years of climbing on these superb gritstone cliffs.
