Scrambling, the middle ground between hill-walking and rock-climbing, is rapidly becoming a highly popular pursuit, both for hill-walkers, seeking a greater challenge and for general mountaineers interested in the classic routes on Scotland's finest mountains. Scrambling often offers both the untrammelled freedom of the hill-walker and the more immediate excitment of the rock climber, but normally without the cumbersome clutter of ropes, karbiners and other rock-climbing paraphernalia. This book is a guide to scrambling the best routes in Scotland. These include the well known classic routes such as Aorach Eagach, An Teallach, Stac Polly and the Cuillin Ridge, but also many lesser known ones such as the Northern Pinnacles of Linthach and Lurgainn Edge of Cul Beag. In addition to these 50 route descriptions another 40 or so routes are mentioned, most with brief descriptions. The book is divided into four parts, each covering the scrambles in a particular geographical location of Scotland. Each route description is accompanied by a sketch map and a photograph. Each scramble has been graded to ensure you know exactly what you are climbing.
A technical appendix entitled "Technical Skills and Ropework" has been contributed by the climber Martin Moran.
