Guidebooks for Corsica
The island of Corsica has a stunning alpine landscape with peaks over 2,000m that dramatically fall away into the sea. This landscape means there is an abundance of beautiful bolted rock to climb, from coarse weathered granite rock, to sandstone or limestone rock. There is climbing all over the island, from single pitch routes to multi-pitch routes up to 300m long, plus many bouldering areas.
All of these rock climbing guidebooks for Corsica are in stock (unless otherwise stated) and are dispatched within 2 working days (usually 24 hours) from the UK.
