The Scottish Rock Volume 2 is a selective rock climbing guide covering over 2400 routes in the North-West, the Far North, the Hebrides and Orkney.
Volume 1 extends the area south of the great Glen whilst the Scottish Rock Volume 2 guide will help you explore the renowned rough Cuillin gabbro on Skye, sample the delights of sea cliff climbing on the islands of Lewis, Pabbay, Mingulay and Orkney. From convenient roadside crags to remote mountain routes and Hebridean sea cliffs, they're all here and this guide will take you to some extraordinary places to experience some of the best rock climbing and scrambling around Scotland. In this new edition the remote nature of the area means that many of the routes are relatively new, the situation is very fluid, and consensus on grades is just emerging. There have been numerous grade adjustments, improvements in descriptions, some topo corrections, and some new routes.
The guide features over 2400 of the region's best routes from Moderate difficulty to top-end Extremes; accessible multi-pitch mountain routes and scrambles; sport climbs from F5 to F8b+; 250 full colour photo topos; scale area maps highlighting the approaches; inspirational photographs, and includes many first ascents.
Selected climbs in Isle of Skye, Applecross, Torridon, Gairloch, Goigach & Assynt, Sutherland, Caithness, Outer Hebrides - Lewis & Harris, Barra Isles - Pabbay & Mingulay, Northern Isles - Orkney.
