Excerpt from Climbing the British Isles, Vol. 2: Wales and Ireland

The present volume is intended to deal with all parts of the British Isles except England, which was the subject of Vol. I., and Scotland, to which Vol. III. Will be devoted. Nothing is here said about the Isle of M an or the Channel Islands, because it would, no doubt, be considered absurd to advise anyone to visit those islands whose main object was the acquisition of mountaineering skill. Pretty as the former island is, its hills are nothing more than hills, except Where they are also railways or tea gardens and even on its cliffs, which are especially fine at the southern end, comparatively little climbing will be found.

In the Cha/nnel Islands, on the other hand, the granite cliffs, though very low, being usually only 100 - 200 ft. High, abound in instructive scrambles. Many such will be found in Guernsey, Jersey, and especially in Sark, but the granite is not everywhere of equally good quality.
