- good guide book for the peaks
can someone recommend me a good guide book for the peaks? I prefer the white peak area. And if possible routes that dont go uphill on the road for ages just to do a technical and steep descent thats over in moments.!!! Good maps not sketches are also helpful

The Vertebrate Publishing ones are both good. They do a Dark Peak one and a White Peak one, both good. Most of the classic routes, OS mapping, clear directions and nicely produced and designed.
Edit: it’s kind of in the nature of things that climbs take longer than descents. Not sure what you can do about that.Posted 7 years ago
lol! I do ride a hardtail but what I meant was that i Would rather walk up a technical climb than walk down a technical descent!
the Vertebrate books give you enough detail to figure that out I’d say.
I steal crayons off my kids to draw the routes onto my laminated OS maps and then you can stitch together different routes.
There’s some pretty nice flowing descents in the Holmesfield area if short and steep isn’t your thing.Posted 7 years ago
