Detailed Product Description

UK, Diadem, 1992, 3rd edition. 236 pp, 100+ b/w and color photos and illustrations. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition. 

SIGNED on the title page by Chris Bonington.

The sixty climbs described are in Scotland, Wales, the Lake District, the Peak and Pennines and on a variety of sea cliffs. To write about them Ken Wilson assembled a formidable cast of characters - Chris Bonington, Hamish MacInnes, Pete Crew, Royal Robbins, Martin Boysen among others - who give a remarkable insight into the attitudes and motivations of climbers as well as vividly conveying the excitement and intrinsic qualities of the climbs. 

In this new edition the essential character of the book, which now has a strong historical flavour, has been left unchanged. Various theme-setting photos have been added to the early pages, the introductory essay has been strengthened with historical photos of the most important pioneers, notes on grading changes are incorporated in the text, and a list of all current guidebooks is introduced to the endpapers.
