More remote routes are described in less detail, reflecting the fact that these are for the more experienced climber looking to get away from the crowds and able to make his or her own choices about the exact route to follow.
Individual ascents are described and graded by difficulty. Photographs are included, with recommended routes superimposed. General information is also included about the local area. Vinyl covered for durability.
