This guide, now in a fully updated sixth edition, offers a selection of some of the best winter routes to be found in the Cairngorms and on Creag Meagaidh. The granite peaks of the Cairngorms have extensive areas of high plateau and four peaks of over 4000ft, while Creag Meagaidh is noted for its classic ice climbs. Well-known routes on Lochnagar are also covered here, as well as the more remote and serious climbs on Braeriach. With something to suit all winter climbers here in the heart of Scotland, the Cairngorms has it all. Routes are illustrated in 51 colour photo topos and include a wide range of grades, lengths and styles, from straightforward to exceptionally difficult. All routes require a solid mountaineering or climbing background.
