A Pocket Guide to Snowdon

A Pocket Guide to Snowdon

by: R. Russell Roberts
Snowdon is one of the finest and most famous mountains in the British Isles and has no rivals south of the Scottish Highlands. This book describes every recognised route to the summit, from the six 'Classic Paths' to the many lesser known and less frequented routes. There is also a section on the minor summits within the range and two enhanced Ordnance Survey maps. The book has lots of colour photographs including illustrations showing an overview of each route. The book also includes an essay on Snowdon in the nineteenth century.
