This is the long-awaited comprehensive guidebook to Southern Ontario’s famous climbing area, The Niagara Escarpment. Published in two volumes, this is the first complete guide to this region in almost 25 years.
Volume 1 - The Southern Escarpment makes extensive use of colour photographs of the cliff to show routes from the climber’s perspective. This feature is particularly helpful due to the dense nature of routes on these almost climb-anywhere walls.
The guide features:
- An extensively researched history of climbing on the Niagara Escarpment. Each book’s history is unique and includes just the areas and events covered in that book.
- Numerous interviews, bios, quotes and anecdotes about the area’s most influential climbers and route developers.
- Beautiful photos of climbers on the area classics and as well as archival photos of Ontario’s rich climbing history.
- Every route description has been rewritten for clarity, correctness and freshness.
- Many lost and forgotten routes were recovered from the ether thanks to meticulous research.
