This splendid, thoroughly researched and well illustrated book details the first 100 years of climbing in The Cairngorms covering the period from 1893 to 1993. It is a tale of human endeavour played out among the remote corries and cliffs of Britain's premier mountain range. The book recounts the pioneering activities of climbers drawn to the high hills of The Cairngorms from all over the country and it details the continuing development of summer and winter climbing on the famous granite cliffs located there, as well as on other lesser known cliffs. Following on from the successful and much lauded Ben Nevis Britain's Highest Mountain, this is the second important book from the Scottish Mountaineering Trust to document the history of Scottish Mountaineering. Hard backed, including 300 contemporary and historically important black & white and colour photographs; 400 pages
