We are Wired

In terms of guidebooks, Britain is one of the richest countries in the world. Since the word Go, activists and clubs combined to record the efforts of the day, meticulously noting the pioneering ascents of explorers so that those who came after could follow in their footsteps and marvel at their achievements. This all began back in 1909 in Snowdonia when JM Archer Thomson & AW Andrews wrote the first complete guidebook to the mountain crag of Lliwedd.

For over a century the clubs have maintained this incredible record of first ascents. These have been chronicled and revised to give climbers the most up-to-date and accurate account of climbing in Britain. These organisations have undertaken the gargantuan task of publishing definitive guidebooks to put this knowledge into the hands of climbers. This work has depended on volunteers, climbers who are committed to contributing something invaluable to the rest of us, putting something back into the world they love.

Wired is a new concept that brings these clubs together. Under this banner, the voluntary guidebook producers share their collective knowledge, skill and enthusiasm to take the information they have spent so long creating and use it in new and creative ways.

Wired Guides are published by a co-operative of UK definitive guidebook publishers including: the British Mountaineering Council, The Climbers’ Club, the Fell & Rock Climbing Club of the English Lake District, the Scottish Mountaineering Club, and the Yorkshire Mountaineering Club. Wired guidebooks aim to document the whole of the UK describing the very best – world-class – rock climbing these beautiful green islands have to offer.
