Scotland’s Winter Mountains with one axe


A guide to thirty journeys through the Scottish mountains – journeys that can be done with a single axe, in a traditional mountaineering style. All are easily accessible and possible to complete within a winter’s day.

All the classic mountaineering ridges are included, such as An Teallach, Liathach and the Aonach Eagach, along with the big gullies of the Northwest.
The book also features a handful of easier journeys, which provide a nice step-up from winter walking.

North Wales Scrambles


A pocket guidebook covering 50 of the best mountain scrambles in Snowdonia – from short scrambles near to the road, through to day-length journeys that weave across Snowdonia’s rugged landscape.

All the well-known classic scrambles of the area are included, such as the North Ridge of Tryfan and the traverse of Crib Goch. The book also features a selection of excellent ‘off the beaten track’ scrambles – routes that will take you to the less-frequented cliffs and cwms of Snowdonia.
