This guide differs in some ways from its predecessors: it contains descriptions of many more short 'outcrop' climbs; it offers fuller descriptions where they are available and appropriate; it attempts to tackle the grading dilemma. It also offers advice on mountaineering issues for climbers who are seduced onto the tops by the promise of glistening ice only to find deep fresh snow, storm force winds and zero visibility.
This edition further extends the boundaries of the climbing area covered. The area has been subdivided into 12 smaller sections with the aim of setting up a framework of the less well-known areas into which future new routes can be added.
