The remarkable ascent and its terrible aftermath form one of the key events in mountaineering history. Available in both hardback and softback.
The second book is a potential future mountain classic: A Pocket Guide to Snowdonia's Best Mountain Walks, by Carl Rogers. Gathered together here are some of the very best high level walks and scrambles throughout Snowdonia, with at least one walk in each of the nine main hill groups: the Carneddau, Glyderau, Snowdon, Eifionydd, Moelwynnion, Rhinogydd, Arenig, Cadair Idris, and the Arans. In full colour, with detailed route descriptions, coloured relief maps, and extensively illustrated with superb photographs.
