Many characteristics of the Yorkshire Dales alter day by day, changing with the seasons, the weather and the hour-making the area an ideal destination for the walker. The unique limestone landscape encompasses vast expanses of high, lonely moor and respectable-sized hills, but it is the intricate web of valleys such as Wharfedale and Swaledale that gives the area its name. The Ice Age was crucial in moulding this landscape of wet upland bog to lush riverside meadows, green valleys and verdant woodland. Spectacular waterfalls are another typical feature and this guide visits those at Aysgarth, Hardraw, Burton Force, Mill Gill and Catrigg Force

With the exception of the Three Peaks walk, they are designed to suit most abilities: steeper sections are rare and usually short-lived.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.
