This is a follow-up to the popular rock climbing guidebook Stone Country which appeared in 2005. It is a full-colour companion to all the best bouldering areas in Scotland, with hundreds of topos, maps, photographs and circuits for the travelling boulderer. It also documents the history of bouldering in Scotland and points to a limitless future for new bouldering from a vibrant community of climbers. Scotland is an exciting and vast geological arena for bouldering. This new guide covers recent development and classic bouldering in the main areas: Dumfries & Galloway, the Clyde Valley, the Trossachs & Arrochar, Lochaber & Glen Nevis, Torridon & Applecross, the East Coast, Aberdeenshire, Inverness & Strathspey, the Far North West and the Islands. Each area is given access maps, diagrams and photo-topos to pinpoint the classic problems and testpieces.
It is a guide for the dedicated boulderer as much as the travelling ‘circuit’ boulderer, and will appeal to all those who enjoyed the first edition. This new edition is full colour and has been radically updated and exhaustively researched. •The only guide to Scottish bouldering - over 70 venues. •Full colour maps, topos and photographs to all the classic problems in each area. •Most of the venues are entirely new!
