The Long Routes: Mountaineering Rock Climbs in Snowdonia and the Lake District is a collection of some of the finest climbs on our high mountain cliffs. The routes described in this book have been chosen because they represent a full-blown mountaineering experience, where the length of the climb, the situation of the mountain, the sense of exposure and the element of adventure count for more than sheer technical challenge. Typically graded between 'difficult' and 'severe', the routes tend to follow the logical line up a cliff and onto a mountain's summit. They all represent long and committing trips, but fall within the capabilities of the average weekend climber or mountaineer, and provide the natural next step for the adventurous scrambler. The Long Routes outlines 45 classic climbs, including Pinnacle Rib on Tryfan, Dow Crag's Gordon and Craig's route, Great Gable's, Needle's Ridge, and Red Wall and Longland's Continuation on Lliwedd. It also looks at the best way of approaching the routes, examining the skills, techniques and equipment needed to undertake them. Each route description is enhanced by a photograph of the cliff, along with a crag diagram and topo, and the book contains a portfolio of fine photographs showing climbers in action on these routes.
