Climbing in the Magic Islands: A Climbing and Hiking Guide to the Lofoten Islands of Norway. Ed Webster. Nord Norsk Klatreskole, Henningsvaer, Norway. Maps, black-and-white photos. Softcover. 320 pages.
Comment: This is the fruit of Ed Webster’s four-year love affair with these fabled islands where magnificent 400-meter granite faces rise above the northwest coast of Norway. Routes range from classics of pioneers like William Cecil Slingsby and Martin H. Ekroll to modern Grade VIIs.
