Who could resist a good ridge? Stony tightropes stringing the peaks, gap-toothed like jawbones; chiselled crests spearing out of sea surge or corrie shadow - such things are the stuff of climbing dreams. This book complements the Cicerone guide "Scotland's Mountain Ridges", describing and celebrating the best routes of their type across the rest of Britain and Ireland, and bringing them all together in one place for the first time. From balmy (and occasionally barmy) seaside trips and roadside quick fixes to strenuous snowy days in the high hills, the selection described here reflects the diversity of mountaineering and traditional climbing in our islands, and the dazzling patchwork quilt of contrasting landscapes in which these adventures can be enjoyed. Within the broad scope of the ridges theme there's something special for everyone, scrambling beginners and hardened climbers alike.
