Yellow Jersey Press Every Second Counts No Colour

Yellow Jersey Press Every Second Counts No Colour


£3.60


In 1999, Lance Armstrong made world headlines with the most stunning comeback in the history of sport, winning the Tour de France in the fastest ever time after battling against life-threatening testicular cancer just eighteen months previously. His first book, It's Not About the Bike, charted his journey back to life and went on to become an international bestseller, and won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2000. Now, in his much-anticipated follow-up, Armstrong shares more details of his extraordinary life story, including a remarkable four more Tour de France wins, an Olympic medal, and the births of his twin daughters Grace and Isabel. Never shy of controversy, Armstrong offers, with typical frankness, his thoughts on training, competing, winning and failure. He also tells of the work he does for the foundation he created following his dramatic recovery, addresses the daunting challenge of living in the aftermath of cancer and treatment, and shares further inspirational tales of survival. A fresh outlook on the spirit of survivors everywhere, Every Second Counts is an account of a man who strives every day to meet life's challenges – whether on his bike or off.Every Second Counts was first published in October 2003. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in January 2013, Lance Armstrong admitted to having taken performance enhancing drugs in all seven of the Tours de France in which he competed between 1999 and 2005. He was officially stripped of these wins by the UCI, the world governing body for cycling, in 2012.

The Kittiwake Press Walks from the Great Little Trains of Wales No Colour


£4.95


Quiet valleys in the sunshine, sheep grazing on the valley floor and the slopes above, and the idyllic silence broken only by the whistle of a steam engine and the rattle of old coaches coming down the line. These are sights and sounds which have always been a part of holidays in Wales. But there is so much more to the Welsh countryside than the preserved steam trains that run through it. The Welsh landscape is one which has been used for different purposes for many centuries. Although today we see mostly grazing land, slate, copper, manganese and even gold mining all have left their mark on the countryside. And the preserved railways are usually where they are precisely because of the industrial heritage of the landscape. Valleys which are quiet and rural today were bustling centres of Victorian industry 150 years ago. The 20 walks in this book have been designed to start and end at a railway station on one of the preserved steam railways in North and Mid Wales, so they can be combined with a ride on one of the railways.

£5.20


Written by Stephen Whitehorne, one of Scotland's best-known photographer/authors, this book brings to life some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. Stephen has explored every nook and cranny of the Highlands and Skye – as well as the mountaintops. The Highlands are one of Europe's last great wilderness areas, one of the few remaining landscapes where genuine solitude can be sought and where the luxuries of silence and space abound. While the tourist boards tend to perpetuate the myths of kilt and bagpipe, the Loch Ness monster and romantic Medieval castles, most people visit Scotland for the reality – for the beauty and great diversity of its scenery, to discover remote lochs, atmospheric glens and dramatic mountains. The car tours, picnics and walks in this book will allow you to discover the very best the Highlands have to offer, whether from your seat in the car, out on a short stroll or committed to an energetic mountain hike.

Pocket Mountains Ltd The Cyclist's Guide to Hillclimbs on Scottish Highland Roads No Colour


£6.99


There is historical precedent for a book that uses roads to inflict pain on people throughout Highland Scotland. Thanks to the various Jacobite Rebellions between 1688 and 1746 the British Government embarked on an unparalleled programme of road building to enable their troops to quickly cross the length and breadth of the land in order to quell unrest and control unruly clansmen.Under the direction of Generals Wade and Caufield, 1,100 miles of roads were constructed in less than fifty years. Inevitably, almost as quickly as they covered the miles in distance, these roads racked up the metres in altitude, as they clambered their way to the lowest point or easiest route through the bealachs that connect the Highland glens that dissect the mountains of Scotland. Following on from A Cyclists' Guide to Hillclimbs on Scottish Lowland Roads, this volume by John H. McKendrick features 40 of the best road climbs in the north of the country, many of them on the old military roads. As well as established classics like the Cairn o'Mount, The Lecht, Bealach Ratagan and, of course, the legendary Belach na Ba, there are some lesser-known gems and unusual challenges to keep the adventurous roadie on their toes.

£7.99


On the night of 10-11 May, 1996, eight climbers perished in what remains the worst disaster in Everest's history. Following the tragedy, numerous accounts were published, with Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air becoming an international bestseller. But has the whole story been told?A Day to Die For reveals for the first time the full, startling facts that led to the tragedy. Graham Ratcliffe, the first British climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest twice, was a first-hand witness, having spent the night on Everest's South Col at 26,000 feet, sheltering from the deadly storm. For years, he has shouldered a burden of guilt, feeling that he and his teammates could have saved lives that fateful night. His quest for answers has led to discoveries so important to an understanding of the disaster that he now questions why these facts were not made public sooner. History is dotted with highprofile disasters that both horrify and capture the attention of the public, but very rarely is our view of them revised to such devastating effect.

Vertebrate Publishing The Wild Within: Climbing the World's Most Remote Mountains No Colour


£8.00


"All mountaineers develop differently. Some go higher, some try ever steeper faces and others specialise in a particular range or region. I am increasingly drawn to remoteness – to places where few others have trod."The Wild Within is the third book from Simon Yates, one of Britain's most accomplished and daring mountaineers. With his insatiable appetite for adventure and exploratory mountaineering, Yates leads unique expeditions to unclimbed peaks in the Cordillera Darwin in Tierra del Fuego, the Wrangell St-Elias ranges on the Alaskan-Yukon border, and Eastern Greenland. Laced with dry humour, he relates his own experience of the rapid commercialisation of mountain wilderness, while grappling with his new-found commitments as a family man. At the same time he must endure his role in the film adaptation of Joe Simpson's Touching The Void, having to relive the events of that trip to Peru for a Hollywood director.Yates' subsequent escape to some of the world's most remote mountains isn't quite the experience it once was, as he witnesses first hand the advance of modern communications into the wilderness, signalled by the ubiquitous mobile phone masts appearing in once deserted mountain valleys. He is left to dwell on the remaining significance of mountain wilderness and must rediscover what the notion of 'wild' means for him now.Simon Yates is an internationally acclaimed mountaineer, adventurer and author who first came to prominence in 1985 after the first ascent of the West Face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes and the ensuing epic descent described in Joe Simpson's book Touching the Void. In a prolific career spanning almost thirty years, Simon's climbing adventures have taken him west to east, from Alaska to Australia; and from north to south, from the Canadian Arctic to the tip of South America. He has climbed with many of Britain's leading mountaineers including Andy Cave, Mick Fowler, Andy Park

MainstreamPublishing Sex, Lies & Handlebar Tape: The Remarkable Life of Jacques Anquetil v15


£8.99


Sex, Lies and Handlebar Tape is the astonishing biography of French cycling star Jacques Anquetil. For the first time since his death in 1987, it reveals the extraordinary truth behind the legend, the man and the cyclist.His list of 'firsts' alone makes him worthy of a place in the cycling pantheon: the first man to win the Tour de France five times; the first man to win all three grand tours - the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España; and the first man to win both the Tour and Vuelta in the same year.However, the extraordinary life of Anquetil does not stop at his achievements on a bike. He candidly admitted to using drugs, offended legions of fans by confessing that his only motivation for riding was financial and infamously indulged his enthusiasm for the high life. He also seduced and married his doctor's wife, had a child with her daughter and then sustained a ménage à trois with both wife and stepdaughter under the same roof for 12 years. When this 'family' eventually imploded, he attempted to inspire jealousy in his former lovers by having a child with his stepson's ex-wife.Containing exclusive contributions from Anquetil's family, friends, teammates and rivals, Sex, Lies and Handlebar Tape untangles myth from reality and confirms that fact is definitely stranger than fiction.

Corgi The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France No Colour


£8.99


On a fateful night in 2009, Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle met for dinner at a restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The two had met five years before while Coyle was writing his bestselling book, Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force. But this time, Tyler had something else on his mind. He finally wanted to come clean, about everything: the doping, the lying, his years as Lance Armstrong's teammate on U.S. Postal, his decade spent running from the truth. 'I'm sorry,' he told Coyle. 'It just feels so good to be able to talk about this. I've been quiet for so many years.'Over the next eighteen months, Hamilton would tell his story – and his sport's story – in explosive detail, never sparing himself in the process. In a way, he became as obsessed with telling the truth as he had been with winning the Tour de France just a few years before. The result of this determination is The Secret Race, a book that pulls back the curtain and takes us into the secret world of professional cycling like never before. A world populated by unbelievably driven – and some flawed – characters. A world where the competition used every means to get an edge, and the options were stark. A world where it often felt like there was no choice.

He visits stone circles, castles and abbeys to tell the history of the people of the fells and valleys, and he conscientiously eats Cumberland Sausage, samples Cumbria's real ales and calls in at a lot of tea shops.

Winner of the Banff Festival Prize for Best Mountain and Wildernesss Literature 2012 and shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker Award 2012. Fiva: An Adventure That Went Wrong is the epic true account from Gordon Stainforth of a near-death experience on a mountain in Norway in 1969.In the summer of 1969, as Apollo 11 was blasting off to the moon, two teenage twin brothers, with only three years' mountaineering experience, set off to climb one of the highest rock faces in Europe. With just two bars of chocolate, some sandwiches, a four-sentence route description and an old sketch map, they left their tent early one morning with the full expectation of being back in time for tea. Within a few hours things had gone badly wrong, they were looking death in the face, and the English Home Counties seemed very far away..."What a brilliant and refreshing read! Once started you just can't put it down." – Sir Chris Bonington CBE."Absolutely superb and totally gripping from the first few pages until the end. What an adventure! I think it's a future classic." – Richard Else, TV Producer."This magnificent book, enjoyed enormously during wet leaf delays at Clapham, was a breath of civilised fresh air. I love the period detail, the humour, the visceral sense of wild landscape and the nail-biting denouement." – Stephen Venables, mountaineer and author."It's tremendous; and also a very accessible read for a non-climber. The pace is excellent – no slack in the rope! It made me laugh. It's a cracking story." – Hilary McKay, winner of The Whitbread Prize.

Ebury Press Everest: The First Ascent No Colour


£9.99


On 29 May, 1953, the summit of Mount Everest was finally reached. The achievement brought fame and honours to many involved – except the man who made the ascent possible.Now, for the first time, drawing upon previously unseen diaries and letters, rare archive material and interviews, Everest: The First Ascent tells the remarkable story of Griffith Pugh, the forgotten team member whose scientific breakthroughs ensured the world's highest mountain could be climbed. A doctor and physiologist, Griffith Pugh revolutionised almost every aspect of British high-altitude mountaineering, transforming the climbers' attitude to oxygen, the clothes they wore, their equipment, fluid intake and acclimatisation.Yet, far from receiving the acclaim he was due, he was met with suspicion and ridicule. His scientific contributions were, quite simply, at odds with old-fashioned notions of derring-do and the gentlemanly amateurism that dogged the sport.This insightful biography shows Pugh to be troubled, abrasive, yet brilliant. Eight years in the writing, closely researched, and told with unflinching honesty by Pugh's daughter, Harriet Tuckey, Everest: The First Ascent is the compelling portrait of an unlikely hero.

Pesda Press Climbing Wall Leading No Colour

Pesda Press Climbing Wall Leading No Colour


£9.99


This book is in the same series and is a natural follow-up to the successful Climbing Games. With the increase in the use of climbing walls more people are learning to lead indoors. This tends to be a more rapid progression than it may be outdoors, and also allows access to much steeper leading at a lower level of climbing experience. There is also an expectation that falling off is the norm, a complete reversal of early stages of leading outdoors on traditional climbs. Teaching leading indoors should be done progressively, the aim being to develop the climbing skills needed very thoroughly. Developing the skills for safe and efficient lead belaying is equally important. Ian Fenton has been involved in teaching leading outdoors and on indoor walls for a number of years. This has also involved evaluating and signing off other instructors to teach leading, at a number of climbing walls; both prior to the advent of the Climbing Wall Leading Award (CWLA), and now as a provider of the CWLA. In the past the teaching of leading has often been done haphazardly, with limited progression, poor route choice and inappropriate belaying. With the help of the exercises in this book it should be possible to design an appropriate progression to suit any individual, of any age or ability, who is learning to lead indoors and lead belay.Ian began climbing with the scouts and his brother in 1972. They both moved on to leading in Lancashire and Yorkshire, but when transport was a problem climbed on the local GPO store wall, until the police believed they were breaking in! Climbing was something you did outdoors back then, and during the winters they ventured out winter climbing, and aid climbing, and visits to Leeds University climbing wall were a way to keep fit. Meeting various local climbers over the years lead to Ian climbing through many areas of the UK and visits to Norway, France and Spain. Redundancy when twenty-seven lead to tak

Graham Forbes loved to play guitar, whether it was with local rock groups in village halls or touring the big stages of the world with the Incredible String Band. But, like so many others, he enjoyed the lifestyle too much: the gigs, groupies and booze. At the age of 27, he found himself more than a little bewildered back in Glasgow, ears ringing, completely unemployable, with an empty bottle of tequila in one hand and a huge overdraft in the other. The party was over. Just when it looked like there could be only one outcome, Graham noticed there were hills nearby and decided to go for a walk. It began a journey that transformed him totally. It took him from poverty to building one of the most successful small companies in Scotland and bluffing his way onto the Board of Directors of a national public limited company, hoping that the next meeting wouldn't be in a hotel he had wrecked. Rock and Roll Mountains weaves in and out of wild sex, drugs and rock tours to glowing sunsets on some of the most beautiful summits in the world. It is a book about extreme sport, fear and survival – but without the the gung-ho heroics of mountaineering writers.At times deeply moving, insightful yet hilarious and with an extraordinary climax, this book is for anyone who has looked in the mirror and wondered where it all went wrong…Above all, it is very, very funny.

When Edmund Hillary first conquered Mount Everest, Sherpa Tenzing Norgay was at his side. Indeed, for as long as Westerners have been climbing the Himalaya, Sherpas have been the unsung heroes in the background. In August 2008, when eleven climbers lost their lives on K2, the world's most dangerous peak, two Sherpas survived. They had emerged from poverty and political turmoil to become two of the most skillful mountaineers on earth. Based on unprecedented access and interviews, Buried in the Sky reveals their astonishing story for the first time. Peter Zuckerman and Amanda Padoan explore the intersecting lives of Chhiring Dorje Sherpa and Pasang Lama, following them from their villages high in the Himalaya to the slums of Kathmandu, across the glaciers of Pakistan to K2 Base Camp. When disaster strikes in the Death Zone, Chhiring finds Pasang stranded on an ice wall, without an axe, waiting to die. The rescue that follows has become the stuff of mountaineering legend. At once a gripping, white-knuckled adventure and a rich exploration of Sherpa customs and culture, Buried in the Sky re-creates one of the most dramatic catastrophes in alpine history from a fascinating new perspective.

Aurum Press Feet in the Clouds: The Classic Tale of Fell-Running and Obsession No Colour


£9.99


The concept of fell running is simple: a long-distance race that includes running up and down several tall mountains. Though rarely making the sports pages, it is a mass-participation sport in areas like the Lake District and Snowdonia – indeed, race organisers turn competitors away so that fragile mountain uplands are not irrevocably damaged by thundering feet. Fixtures like the annual Ben Nevis and Snowdon races, or the Borrowdale and Wasdale fell runs in the Lakeland valleys (20-mile-plus marathons), have remained local events attended by the whole community – the runners back at work the next day shearing sheep. Now, Richard Askwith explores the world of fell-running in the only legitimate way: by donning his Ron Hill vest and studded shoes and spending a season running as many of the great fell races as he can, from Borrowdale to Ben Nevis: an arduous schedule that tests the very limits of one's stamina and courage. Along the way he also meets the greats of fell-running – like the remarkable Joss Naylor, who to celebrate his fiftieth birthday ran all 214 major Lakeland fells in a single week; Billy Bland, the combative Borrowdale man whose astounding records still stand for many of the top races; and Bill Teasdale, a hero of the sport's earlier, professional days, whom he tracks down to his tiny cottage in the northern Lakes. And ultimately Askwith's obsession drives him to attempt the ultimate challenge: the Bob Graham Round – a non-stop circuit of 42 of the Lake District's highest peaks to be completed within 24 hours.This is a portrait of one of the few sports to have remained utterly true to its roots – in which the point is not fame or fortune but to run the ancient, wild landscape, and to be a hero, if at all, within one's own valley.

It begins with the journey she made with some Aboriginal women in North West Australia where she learned a kind of logic we've long forgotten in Britain and when she returned to the UK, she applied what they'd taught her. After 10 years of work, she realised she'd discovered the lost route we used as hunter-gatherers in Britain. The discovery of how we actually fit into nature in every season is having an amazing effect on people: they express how deeply this is touching their soul, opening their eyes to the lost world around us and the missing link they've always been looking for. It was the same for the author, with every discovery, she felt a huge "aha!" moment as her understanding of our rightful place in the world suddenly opened up and developed into a whole new sphere; sphere after sphere.Campbell was also determined to find out what had happened to us to separate us from the way of life we must have loved so much. After 15 years of piecing together the fragments of knowledge left in our myths and legends and cultural history, she finally worked it out. This book is the starting point for your own journey of discovery, to show you how to find the lost heavens of our lives, and how to open up your intuitive thinking to a level that only you, as a hunter-gatherer, can do.This is the long awaited fourth book of bestseller Ffyona Campbell, author of: On Foot Through Africa; The Whole Story, a walk around the world; Feet of Clay.

While on one level it is a vivid and evocative account of a remarkable trek – never attempted before – on another it celebrates the uniqueness of the Highlands the scenery and ecology of 'the last wilderness in Europe'.

His route traversed the most spectacular landscape in Scotland linking every portion of wilderness and was completed in the midst of the harshest winter conditions imaginable. Hell of a Journey was widely acclaimed on its first publication in 2000. In an Epilogue to this new edition Mike Cawthorne reflects on his epic trek and wonders what a reader who followed in his footsteps today would discover.

The challenge, laid down by a cycling magazine in 1910, was simple: who could ride a bicycle the greatest distance in a calendar year?This is the true story of Tommy Godwin, a 27 year old cyclist from Stoke-on-Trent, who responded to that challenge and who set the standard so high that his record remains unsurpassed after over seventy years. He became and remains the 'greatest long-distance cyclist in the world'.Setting out on 1st January 1939 Tommy Godwin battled through the snow, ice, hail and wind of a severe British winter, then a hot summer. He had his cuts and bruises from falls on poor roads, and then had to deal with the restrictions imposed by the outbreak of World War II. Riding everyday except one, he achieved the unbelievable total of over 75,000 miles in the year. That is to say, he cycled the equivalent of four times round the world, or from Lands End to John O'Groats eighty-eight times in a year!Not satisfied with that remarkable feat, he continued to ride until he completed 100,000 miles by Whitsun the following year.These two endurance records have never been beaten to this day.

Each of these has a character very different to the others, and this one fact alone gives a variety to the landscape. Within this area, so accessible from London, lie a whole range of inland and coastal landscapes, some as empty and remote as anywhere in England, and four great surviving forests – Hainault, Hatfield, Epping and Writtle. This guidebook describes the 25 best day walks right across the area, ranging in length from 4 to 18 miles, 22 circular and 3 linear, but none of them particularly hilly with the highest point in the county only 482ft.

Vertebrate Publishing Straight Up: Himalayan Tales of the Unexpected No Colour


£12.99


Born in the foothills close to the Himalaya, Steve Berry had from an early age an urge to become a traveller, an adventurer, an explorer, and until the age of 38 years he tried hard to satisfy two opposing forces. Half of him wanted to find a satisfactory career path while the other half wanted to be free and specifically explore the Himalaya. In the end he found a compromise to satisfy both needs. In 1987 with his climbing friend Steve Bell he founded Himalayan Kingdoms, a travel company specializing in trekking and expedition holidays. This book is a collection of stories from his early expeditions to the Himalaya prior to 1987. There are tales of encounters with bears, escapes from avalanches, summit successes and failures, love stories, mystical connections, Himalayan storms, near death accidents, raw travel across the Indian sub continent, and grapples with bureaucracy. It is told warts and all. It starts with tales of youthful naivety in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, progresses to what Steve describes as his best ever adventure, the first British ascent of Nun, Kashmir (7,135m), and finishes with the truth of what happened on the failed attempt to climb Bhutan's highest peak, Gangkar Punsum (7,550m). Of Straight Up, Steve says, "I just really wanted people to enjoy reading of our adventures the way they were."The book is published under the Himalayan Kingdoms imprint.Steve Berry has always had a peculiar fascination for the Himalaya. He grew up with his father's stories of India, and was beguiled by black and white photos from his dad's expedition to the Nun Kun massif in Kashmir. From an early age the ambition to explore in the greatest mountain range on earth grew and grew. He has taken part in nine mountaineering adventures to the Himalaya and has now completed some 60 treks in Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, and various other parts of the Himalaya.

Vertebrate Publishing Deep Play: Climbing the World's Most Dangerous Routes No Colour


£12.99


Winner of the 1997 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature, Paul Pritchard's Deep Play is a unique, stylish and timeless commentary reflecting the pressures and rewards of climbing some of the world's hardest and most challenging rock climbs.Pritchard started climbing in Lancashire before moving to join the vibrant Llanberis scene of the mid 1980s, at a time when the adventurous development of the Dinorwig slate quarries was in full swing. Many of the new slate routes were notable for their fierce technical difficulty and sparse protection, and Pritchard took a full part in this arcane sub-culture of climbing and at the same time deployed his skills on the Anglesey sea cliffs to produce a clutch of equally demanding wall climbs.Born with an adventurous soul, it was not long before Pritchard and his friends were planning exotic trips. In 1987, paired with Johnny Dawes, Pritchard made an epoch-making visit to Scotland's Sron Ulladale to free its famous aid route, The Scoop. Pritchard and Dawes, with no previous high altitude experience, then attempted the Catalan Pillar of Bhagirathi III in the Garwhal Himalaya in India, a precocious first expedition prematurely curtailed when Pritchard was hit by stonefall at the foot of the face. In 1992, Pritchard and Noel Craine teamed up with the alpinists Sean Smith and Simon Yates to climb a big wall route on the East Face of the Central Tower of Paine, Patagonia. Pritchard followed this with an equally fine first ascent of the West Face of Mt Asgard on Baffin Island.Other trips – to Yosemite, Pakistan and Nepal as well as returns to Patagonia – resulted in a clutch of notable repeats, first ascents and some failures. The failure list also included two life threatening falls (one on Gogarth, the other on Creag Meaghaidh), which prompted the author into thought-provoking personal re-assessments, in advance of his later near-terminal accident on The Totem Pole in Tasmania.

Winner of the 2012 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature."I was aware that I was cold – beyond cold. I was a lump of meat left for too long in a freezer, a body trapped beneath the ice, sinking down into the dark.""I was freezing to death."In this brilliant sequel to his award-winning debut Psychovertical, mountaineering stand-up Andy Kirkpatrick has achieved his life's ambition to become one of the world's leading climbers. Pushing himself to new extremes, he embarks on his toughest climbs yet – on big walls in the Alps and Patagonia – in the depths of winter.Kirkpatrick has more success, but the savagery and danger of these encounters comes at huge personal cost. Questioning his commitment to his chosen craft, Kirkpatrick is torn between family life and the dangerous path he has chosen. Written with his trademark wit and honesty, Cold Wars is a gripping account of modern adventure.Andy Kirkpatrick has a reputation for seeking out routes where the danger is real, and the return is questionable, pushing himself on some of the hardest walls and faces in the Alps and beyond. He was born and raised on a council estate in Hull, one of the UK's flattest cities, and suffered from severe dyslexia, which went undiagnosed until he was 19. Thriving on this apparent adversity, Andy transformed himself into one of the world's most driven and accomplished climbers, and an award-winning writer. In 2001 he undertook an eleven-day solo ascent of the Reticent Wall on El Capitan, one of the hardest solo climbs in the world. This climb was the central theme of his first book Psychovertical, which won the 2008 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature. Cold Wars, which also won the Boardman Tasker Prize in 2012, is his second book. Andy lives in Sheffield with his two children.

£12.99


With over 1,000 years of history, the Way of St. James is one of the classic long distance walks. This historical route along almost 1,000 kilometres from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela offers unique cultural, scenic and nature experiences. Since the Holy Year of 2010 the Way of St. James has gained even more in popularity and attracts more and more people from very different backgrounds, faiths and generations. It does not matter what the reason might be for setting out on the path to Santiago de Compostela – in the end you are confident that you have had a quite special experience. The Rother walking guide describes in a total of 41 stages the whole of the Camino francés from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port via Roncesvalles, as well as the Aragon route from the Somport pass via Jaca to Santiago de Compostela, including possible secondary routes and the extension to Finisterre or Muxía. Thus the Way of St. James leads through a wealth of diverse landscapes, continuously interrupted by culturally and historically interesting places like Roncesvalles, Pamplona, Puente la Reina, San Juan de Ortega, Burgos or Leon, to name but a few. The natural experience dominates at first with the Pyrenean mountains, then the Rioja region characterised by vineyards, followed by the endless barren wastes of the Castillian plateau. But finally, it is the greenery of Galicia that rewards you for all your efforts and deprivations of the long journey, before you reach the climactic destination of Santiago de Compostela. If you still have time, then continuing to the coast, to Finisterre and Muxía, is highly recommended.Detailed maps, precise descriptions of the individual stages including easy-to-read height profiles, as well as comprehensive details of the infrastructure along the way such as medical services, shopping opportunities or banks, make your planning of the walk easier, especially for deviations from the stages described in this guide.

£12.99


For a long time the Costa Blanca has had a reputation for having the best chance of winter sun, the cheapest flights and the most reasonably priced accommodation. However, the 'White Coast' has a lot more to offer than the simple beach holidays enjoyed by thousands of tourists every year. Not only the spectacular and varied mountains close to the coast, but also the marvellous spring blossom and warm autumn days have attracted walkers and climbers from all over Europe for decades. High barren mountains and their series of steep ridges contrast with fertile garden landscapes and widespread fruit plantations on the coast.Gill Round, who lives in the Costa Blanca and has guided walks there for some years, introduces 51 particularly interesting routes which also savour details of the cultural history and reveal culinary delights. This guide provides a reliable companion for unforgettable days in spectacular natural environments – for short trips near to large holiday resorts, as well as more challenging summit ascents in the remote mountain countryside of Alicante province. The selection ranges from leisurely strolls along the coast, to pleasantly cool rambles along rivers and gorges, to mountain walks with stunning views.Every walk contains a fact-file of all the important information, a detailed walk description, a small map showing the line of the route and an easy-to-read height profile.

£12.99


Bizarre coastal cliffs, charming sandy bays, beautiful chestnut and pine forests, sparkling clean brooks, magical mountain lakes, summit destinations at over 2,700 metres high, as well as predominantly unspoilt nature – what other holiday destination in Europe can boast a similar offer? There is hardly another place where a walking and bathing holiday can be combined in such an ideal way as on this Mediterranean island.Among hikers and mountain climbers, Corsica is no longer a secret. The long-distance alpine hiking trail 'GR 20' is especially popular, and a few tours in this guide follow portions of that route. The undisputed highlight, however, are the towering peaks of the two-thousand metre mountains Monte Cinto, Monte Rotondo, Paglia Orba and Monte d'Oro, which place the breathtaking, small world of the 'Mountain Range in the Sea' at the feet of hikers. But also nature lovers with less than alpine interests, and even die-hard Corsica fans will love this walking guide. Because, in addition to the main tourist routes, the author presents a number of less known walking options, from a beach walk to an adventurous cascade tour, to an easy panoramic summit.Most of these tours can be undertaken by families with children and elderly persons without difficulty. Lots of tips and information round out this well-executed walking guide and make it a must when travelling in the unique mountain landscape of Corsica.

Tenerife can easily be described as the most versatile hiking paradise of the Canary Islands. The 'Island of Bliss' not only offers the highest peak of the Canary archipelago and the whole of Spain (the Pico del Teide measuring 3,718m) it also unites countless, completely different types of landscape: the extremely bare, almost desert-like south, holiday destination of sun aficionados, is in strict contrast to the picture landscape of the fertile north with its sumptuous nature. The mountain regions are covered in evergreen laurel and heathered forests as well as extensive woods of pine tree. A scenic highlight is bound to be the moon landscape of the Cañadas del Teide National Park.As a result, Tenerife is not only a refuge for central Europeans who shy away from winter, but mainly an ideal island for hiking. With the wide ocean at all times in sight, the range of the 70 hiking tours presented in this guide includes easy paths over rough cliffs and picturesque trips to heights as well as ascents to peaks that offer a fabulous view – hiking paths through fairytale-like nebulous primeval forests are also included, such as the partially paved Caminos, which in the early days where the main connecting routes between villages. Many tour suggestions in this hiking guide are suitable for less experienced hikers. Skilled mountaineers who do not fear »tours of the drastic kind« and who are in for a touch of adventure and a bit of a kick will also find a rich offering: daring cliff tours, spectacular ravine excursions and extensive mountain trips whose highlight must be the parade summit of the National Park.Atmospheric pictures and excellent hiking maps at an ideal scale of 1:50,000/1:75,000 and informative height profiles round off the picture and ignite curiosity for ever new tours into this bizarre and charming world of mountains. An overall successful guide brought up to date, which leaves nothing to desire!

The Great Himalaya Trail is one of the longest and highest trails in the world. It is a trail that winds for 1,700 kilometres through Nepal – across the 'roof of the world', over ice-covered passes, crossing high-mountain deserts and through some of the most remote areas on earth. This path is perhaps the ultimate walk.In 2012, Himalaya veteran Gerda Pauler set out to walk the length of the trail to raise awareness of autism in Nepal. Travelling across the country with open eyes and ears, ascending high passes, visiting isolated villages and drinking tea with the locals allowed her to see and hear things many of us might never hear, never experience – and never know.Beautifully written like many great travel books and with a foreword by Sir Chris Bonington, this is so much more than a travel diary – it is a collection of stories from the very heart of Nepal and its people. From Tibetan tea and local beer to corrupt politicians and child marriage; cold nights and monsoon rain to incredible views and searing heat; and from angry yaks and giant spiders to Mr Bean and Jack Nicholson...

Bergverlag Rother Madeira: Rother Walking Guide No Colour

Bergverlag Rother Madeira: Rother Walking Guide No Colour


£12.99


The first Portuguese word which hikers learn on Madeira is bound to be 'levada'. Levada hiking is surely unique. A sophisticated network of narrow irrigation canals runs across the entire island. The maintenance paths installed next to canal trenches allow the convenient discovery of Madeira without great altitude all the way to the most remote corners. Around half of the walks introduced in this guide are Levada excursions. They lead through fertile land cultivating sugar cane, bananas, vine and exotic fruit, past artistic terraces modelled into the island's rugged topography, which awaken associations of Bali or the Philippines. Rushing cascades and impressive ravines are found equally by the wayside as are rough, declining cliffs and marshy high-moor bogs. The still natural valley to the north of the island offers a sumptuous evergreen subtropical vegetation comprising fern meadows, lauraceae forests and heather shrubs that convey the feeling of walking through an emerald green tunnel.With all the fascination for the Levada paths it should not be forgotten that the volcano island also is a fabulous territory for mountaineers. The nearly 1,900-meter-high central massive holds routes for all demands. Very alpine is the triple summit tour from the Arieiro over the Torres to the Pico Ruivo. The stretch, which has been spectacularly chiselled into the rock, can justifiably be considered the tour of kings. Next to various shepherd paths and adventurous coastal ascents there are so-called 'veredas', i.e. old paths linking villages, which used to be the sole access to remote locations until a few decades ago only, crossing valleys deep and mountains high.

Akreative Boundless: An Adventure Beyond Limits No Colour

Akreative Boundless: An Adventure Beyond Limits No Colour


£12.99


Boundless is a book about facing challenge and fear, both in the wilderness and at home. Karen's first book If You Fall is about recovering from the rock-climbing accident that paralysed her and about returning to adventures and embracing change. Boundless is a very different book and tells the stories of the biggest challenges Karen has faced yet, beginning with a 600 kilometre crossing of the Greenland icecap on a sit-ski, a month long journey across one of the world's great expanses of wilderness. This journey led Karen to a bold decision to return to the rock and a week-long climb suspended on the kilometre-high overhanging face of El Capitan, using just her arms in over 4,000 pull-ups.Boundless isn't a book about expedition heroics, but one that offers a view of life's challenges and the profound effects of wilderness. Karen's adventures show just what is possible when heart and mind are set to something. Karen Darke was a keen runner and mountaineer, then at the age of 21 she fell from a cliff and became paralysed from the chest down. Determined not to let her condition get the better of her, Karen embarked on a series of testing adventures. Within four years of her accident she was hand-biking over the Himalaya, a 1,200 mile trip that many said was impossible. Since then her adventures have included the Japanese archipelago by handbike, sea kayaking a 1200 mile length of the Canada-Alaska coastline, crossing Greenland by sit-ski, and climbing the overhanging rock face of El Capitan in Yosemite, California.

Described by the Boardman Tasker judges as "one of the most important mountaineering books to be written for many years," Freedom Climbers tells the story of the extraordinary Polish adventurers who emerged from under the blanket of oppression following the Second World War to become the world's leading Himalayan climbers.Although they lived in a war-ravaged landscape, with seemingly no hope of creating a meaningful life, these curious, motivated and skilled mountaineers built their own free-market economy under the very noses of their Communist bosses and climbed their way to liberation.Freedom Climbers is a meticulously researched and beautifully crafted book, of the highest quality in this genre–a worthy winner of the 2011 Boardman Tasker Award and a must read for all climbers or anyone with so much as a passing interest in mountaineering history.

And, with science on your side, you can make the smart calls to become a better, faster triathlete.Faster offers specific, science-based guidance on the fastest techniques and the most effective gear, answering questions like: Which wetsuit is best for me?

Its fervent practitioners, known as CrossFitters, are as competitive as they are sweaty, striving for the pride of marking their time atop the list of the day's top performers.CrossFit's "boxes" are brick-walled industrial warehouses, gyms, and garages floored with rubber mats and chock full of kettlebells, free weights, ropes, medicine balls, truck tyres, jump ropes, and bags of chalk. CrossFitters race to complete the day's prescribed workout, many named after fallen war heroes, with exercises that include burpees, box jumps, clean and jerks, and pull-ups-as many times as they can in a designated time period. Workouts are intense, leaving spent athletes dripping with sweat and glowing with endorphin-fuelled satisfaction.In a departure from sterile mainstream gyms, it is camaraderie that keeps CrossFitters coming back week after week for their hour of high-intensity suffering-that and the promise of weight loss and a sculpted physique. Its practitioners know well that CrossFit has changed lives, forming biggest losers into lean, mean evangelists.Author and veteran CrossFitter T. J. Murphy takes up CrossFit to find out why it works, how it feels, and whether it can fix his broken-down body. In the process, he discovers a fascinating fitness phenomenon with a culture all its own.

Vertebrate Publishing One Day as a Tiger: Alex MacIntyre and the Birth of Light and Fast Alpinism 2nd Edition, Paperback


£14.95


"The wall was the ambition, the style became the obsession."In the autumn of 1982, a single stone fell from high on the south face of Annapurna and struck Alex MacIntyre on the head, killing him instantly and robbing the climbing world of one of its greatest talents. Although only twenty-eight years old, Alex was already one of the leading figures of British mountaineering's most successful era. His ascents included hard new routes on Himalayan giants like Dhaulagiri and Changabang and a glittering record of firsts in the Alps and Andes. Yet how Alex climbed was as important as what he climbed. He was a mountaineering prophet, sharing with a handful of contemporaries – including his climbing partner Voytek Kurtyka – the vision of a purer form of alpinism on the world's highest peaks. One Day As A Tiger, John Porter's revelatory and poignant memoir of his friend Alex MacIntyre, shows mountaineering at its extraordinary best and tragic worst – and draws an unforgettable picture of a dazzling, argumentative and exuberant legend.John Porter was born in Massachusetts and he started climbing at the age of twelve, serving his apprenticeship in the White Mountains, Rockies, Cascades and Yosemite. He moved to the UK in the early 1970s to do postgraduate work at Leeds University where he joined a team of climbers dedicated to clean ethics, alpine-style and the fostering of international partnerships. Ascents of the North Face of Koh-i-Bandaka (1977) and the south face of Changabang (1978) with Alex MacIntyre and Polish friends were achieved in the middle of the cold war. Other climbs include lightweight attempts of the west ridge of Everest in winter, the north-west ridge of K2, the east face of Sepu Kangri, first ascents of Chong Kundam I and V in the Eastern Karakoram, and many other notable climbs around the world over a period of fifty-five years. In 1980 he founded the Kendal Mountain Festival with Brian Hall and Jim Curran, a

His first taste of rock climbing was with the local scout group and, aged 15, with a regular climbing partner, he began to tick his way through the Peak's classic gritstone and limestone routes. While he enjoyed climbing the classic testpieces, he found far more pleasure exploring and bouldering in the esoteric corners of the Peak. In the late 1990s he stumbled into the Churnet for the first time and began a relationship with the area which continues to this day.

Vertebrate Publishing High Point: A Guide to Walking the Summits of Great Britain's Historic Counties 1st Edition, December 2014


£14.95


In 2008 Mark Clarke embarked on a journey to visit the highest point in each of the eighty-five historic counties in Great Britain. Over the course of four years, he walked over 500 miles and climbed over 100,000 feet, sampling all that is great about Britain along the way.Mark's journey took in the mountainous summits of Scotland and Wales (Ben Nevis, the county top of Inverness-shire, and Snowdon, the county top of Caernarfonshire) as well as dozens of less visited high points, such as the unfortunately named Boring Field in Huntingdonshire.High Point is Mark's account of his experiences and the challenges he faced in his travels – including suffering a broken leg on a remote hillside in Scotland while walking alone. It is rich with historical information and observations about Britain's counties and serves as an indispensable guide to the historic and modern counties of Great Britain and their highest points.Each county has its own gazetteer section with information about the county, the county top, Mark's ascent and local information. High point walk directions are accompanied by an Ordnance Survey map to help you plan your own High Point adventure.Mark Clarke's interest in hill walking started when he was at school and took part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. As part of this and other school activities, he made several visits to Snowdonia, culminating in his Gold Award expedition over four days and fifty miles – following in the footsteps of his two brothers and in the process pulling off the perhaps unusual feat of three brothers each achieving the Gold Award. The mountain skills and disciplines which he had learnt in Snowdonia sat idle for many years subsequently, but happily stood him in good stead on his High Point project – he even used the very same compass which he had used in Snowdonia some forty years earlier. He has a MA from Oxford University and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accoun
