An essential guidebook to Britain's most popular and classic mountains. From the mountaineering editor of Trail magazine this illustrated guide describes 170 of the best walking and scrambling routes and five `challenge' routes.

Every mountain in England and Wales over 3,000 ft, and every mountain in Scotland over 4,000 ft is described. This selection encompasses a wide variety of terrain and routes, from a simple walk up Snowdon to an exhilarating adventure on the towering cliffs of Ben Nevis.

Each route includes:
* Detailed description of each descent and ascent
* Alternative routes to suit different preferences, levels of ability, and experience
* Relief maps showing each peak and their approaches
* Hand drawn illustrations highlight points of interest and changes to the terrain
