Northern England Rockfax


Quick Overview

A rock climbing guidebook to selected routes on the gritstone and sandstone edges of Yorkshire and Northumberland.

Author: Chris Craggs

An excellent selected climbs guide for Australians visiting this area because of it's wide coverage. The specific Eastern and Western Grit guides offer more detailed coverage for the dedicated. The wide rolling hills, outcrops and quarries of Sandstone and Gritstone that pepper northern England have long been popular with the locals, though visitors are less common, except on the few better known cliffs. Although lacking the extensive edges of the Peak District, there are many fine crags and hidden classics here waiting for the diligent explorer. This guidebook will help climbers get the most from this superb and varied area.

The book is a selected route and crag guide although it still manages to pack over 2350 routes between its covers, spread across 44 crags. The main focus is on routes of all grades from Moderate to E9, but the best bouldering is also described.

Format - The book is presented using the familiar Rockfax features of beautiful photo-topos, accurate descriptions, detailed crag maps, inspiring action shots, route symbols, crag tables and graded lists.
