A guide to the techniques, gear and skills that the ambitious hillwalker needs to tackle Britain's classic mountaineering challenges - from the tricky step of Broad Stand on the traverse from Scafell Pike to Sca Fell, to the mighty Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis - competently. 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 book guides the hillwalker through technical terrain where the unaware can all too easily fall off. 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 are all dealt with as are the basic skills required for safe travel by the winter hillwalker. Features 12 great British mountaineering routes - such as the Aonach Eagach in Glen Coe, Pinnacle Ridge in the Lake District, the Cneifion Arete in Snowdonia, and Skye's wonderful Cuillin Ridge - where the practical skills may be applied when the necessary techniques, abilities and confidence have been acquired.
