The Outer Hebrides: Niall Grimes reviews the new SMC guide

Throw open any page in this new guidebook and, if there’s a heartbeat inside that overtrained husk that you call your body, you will immediately be lost in a world of dreams and inspiration. Drop-dead seacliffs yawn above wild Atlantic seascapes; climbers dotted on multipitch adventues on the most independent of geology; routes of every grade that cross impossible terrain thanks to a million Christmasses’-worth of jugs and cracks. Is this the last outpost of adventure for UK trad climbing? A Yukon of pump?

I'm sure someone will already have picked up the typo on page Egerton/3 but just in case... In the 'Bouldering' paragraph, the final word (challenges) is missing an e.

The guide looks marvellous! I really appreciate the work that's gone into its creation. Many, many thanks to all who contributed their time and efforts.

Hey thanks MJB, very kind of you to say, and glad that all the volunteers' efforts shine through. And thanks for the heads up on the typo, that one almost made it over the wire ;-)

The new guidebook looks truly fantastic and thank you for all the hard work that has gone into this endeavour. Will the guide include the scarce but still existing old aid routes in Denham and Hoghton and later additions such as New Wave Breaks (A2) on Chimney Buttress, Wilton 1? Out of vogue maybe but in keeping with the tradition of the quarries and still fun for some.
