The Lundy guide is a climbing guidebook featuring just under 1000 routes that show the full range of Lundy's climbing with good routes at all grades.
Completely revised from the 2004 edition, the new and updated Lundy climbing guide now has more than 200 new routes and includes a new set of colour photo-diagrams, photomaps and maps (50 in total). Also been collected together are a stunning set of action photos (many taken by the author himself) including a number of double page spreads. Dave Pickford has contributed a section on Deep Water Soloing. As befits the island most of the solos described are at the harder and more adventurous end of the scale and all require a high tide! For those who like lists, the guide has an Alternative Lundy List (for those who have done the most obvious routes) and a Lundy Esoterica page (for those who really want to get off the beaten track!). A full colour 34cm x 20m map of the island (printed on the same waterproof paper as the BMC maps) is also included with the guide. This fills the gap left when the island shop stopped selling the 5 inches to the mile map which in the past climbers have found so useful.
Neil Dickson's Chronology has collated the Historical and First Ascents sections and includes many quotations both old and new from those involved in the island's climbing. Neil himself has been responsible for some of Lundy's hardest new routes including the island's first E9.
The book is produced in the Climbers' Club's new all-colour format which has enabled the author and the team to do justice to the fascinating, isolated and adventurous nature of the island and its climbing.
