The Cairngorms: 100 Years of Mountaineering by Greg Strange

An illustrated history from the Scottish Mountaineering Trust of the first 100 years of mountaineering in The Cairngorms - one of the most popular and most famous climbing areas in the UK. 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. "The Cairngorms - 100 Years of Mountaineering" is a comprehensive history which details climbing and mountaineering in the Cairngorms from 1893 to 1993, with a postscript highlighting some of the main developments since then. 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 describes the continuing development of summer and winter climbing on the famous granite cliffs located there, as well as on other lesser known cliffs. This title presents full history of the first 100 years of climbing in Britain's most important mountain range. It is written by the foremost expert on climbing in The Cairngorm mountains. It is heavily illustrated with 300 photographs, many of which are of historical importance. It is a book which will appeal to all who have climbed, or aspire to climb in one of Britain's most popular climbing areas. It is a companion to Ben Nevis - Britain's Highest Mountain.
