There was a time when climbing and walking were completely distinct activities. But as the number of people getting out to enjoy the wonders and challenges of Britain’s mountains has grown, the definition of a mountain ‘walk’ has changed. The Hillwalker’s Guide to Mountaineering features the techniques, gear and approaches that the active and ambitious hillwalker needs to be equipped with to competently tackle Britain’s classic mountaineering challenges, from the tricky step of Broad Stand on the traverse from Scafell Pike to Scafell, to the mighty Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis. -Leads the hillwalker through technical terrain where the unaware can all too easily get into difficulties –awkward grade 1-3 scrambling territory. -Covers use of the rope to abseil, belay and protect ascents and descents on steep ground, the placement of protection, gear selection, navigation, survival, scrambling and first aid skills in a highly practical manner. -Describes the basic skills required for safe travel by the winter hillwalker. The guide goes on to feature a dozen great Britisch mountaineering routes, such as the spectacular objectives of the Aonach Eagach in Glen Coe, Pinnacle Ridge in the Lake District, the Cneifion Arête in Snowdonia, and a big day out on Skye’s wonderful Cuillin Ridge. The routes are characterized by an increasing level of difficulty and commitment, and –once the techniques, abilities and confidence essential to tackle each route safely have been acquired- the provide an opportunity to put new skills into practice.
