Symonds Yat and Huntsham Crags in the Forest of Dean are covered by the Climbers' Club for the first time in this modestly priced hardback. The mainly single-pitch routes on the Yat's limestone and on Huntsham's strange sandstone are described with the aid of 9 maps and 8 action photos.
Some climbers don't visit Symonds Yat, as they've heard tales of its occasionally muddy approach paths, toproped-to-death honeypot routes, and the odd loose hold. So why buy the guidebook?
For the sustained yet well-protected corner of The Golden Fleece (Severe), the 3-star crack-climbing of Red Rose Speedway (HVS), or the exposed headwall on Sweden (E2), to name but a few. For airy routes on the Long Stone, an isolated pinnacle perched high above the river. For over four hundred other climbs, one hundred of them new, set amidst the Yat's leafy glades.
