All the selected scrambles lie within a 20km x 15km area of northern Snowdonia – a relatively compact area as far as mountains are concerned, so dead easy to get around. As well as high mountain scrambles, the book includes a few shorter scrambles near to the road, which can be done in a couple of hours. There are also suggestions for linking scrambles, to create day-length journeys across Snowdonia’s rugged landscape.
Scotland’s Winter Mountains with one axe is a book for anyone who loves the Scottish mountains. It will take you into the deep Torridonian gullies of the Northwest, along the narrow ridges of Skye’s Cullin and across the high arctic plateau of the Northern Cairngorms.
