Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
UK, 1975, 1st edition, 2nd state. 220 pp, 100+ ill. The 57 hardest British rock climbs. Route photos & diagrams. This book was the first modern celebration of the high standard rock climbing being done in Britain. Following the format of Rebuffat's Mont Blanc The 100 Finest Routes, this set the stage for many 'list books' like the immortal 50 Classic Climbs of North America which followed by only a few years. Large-format hardcover, DJ, Fine. 
 
SIGNED by Chris Bonington.
 
This 1975 edition does not show up in most bibliographies, so we got the direct scoop from Ken Wilson himself. The 1st UK ediiton was 1974, and when an American distributor expressed interest, Wilson printed more copies, identical in every way to the 1st UK, except dated 1975. There is no indication this is an American edition, even the price on the DJ is on pounds (6.95).
