Vertical (English) - - Euronews - James Rush­forth, 496 pages. The Dolomites, Rock Climbs and Via Fer­rata. Rock­fax.com,

Have you ever been tempted to visit the Dolomites, know­ing lit­tle about them but feel­ing the draw of this great, dis­tant and rather spe­cial range? If so, the new Rock­fax guide by James Rush­forth is for you. It is not an ex­haus­tive guide­book, but a “best of ” of the most clas­sic groups in this vast moun­tain re­gion.There is plenty to keep you go­ing for nu­mer­ous trips, par­tic­u­larly as along­side the clas­sic trad routes which are the main at­trac­tion, the au­thor has also cho­sen to in­clude de­scrip­tions of sport crags and the via fer­rata routes for which the area is renowned.The prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion is very com­plete and the se­lec­tion of routes has been care­fully cho­sen to ap­peal to any­one who has dreamed of th­ese moun­tains but never dared to climb them.There is a wide spread of grades through­out the book and James’ pho­tos are mag­nif­i­cent.
