Mountain Literature - Cold Climbs - Great Snow and Ice Climbs of the British Isles
Cold Climbs depicts the hostile, yet magnificent environment in which snow and ice climbers ply their craft. Tackling the British Crags and mountains in savage winter conditions is one of the most extreme and satisfying of climbing's many sub-cultures. It has given rise to some of the greatest episodes in the history of the sport. The climbs seem to exude a sense of menace and legend: Zero, Point Five, Black Cleft, Sticil Face, Labyrinth, Eagle Ridge, Raven's Gully, Orion Face, Mitre Ridge, Western Gully are names to thrill the spirit, set the pulse racing and fire the ambitions of any real climber.
This new version of the book incorporates an extra section of colour plates depicting climbs that were inadequately illustrated in earlier editions. There is also a brief summary on grading developments, equipment, climbing ability and new historical information.
