Vertebrate Publishing is a small team of dedicated climbers, walkers and mountain bikers who only produce books that we would want to use or read ourselves. We focus all our efforts on inspirational content, accuracy and great value. 

We publish high quality outdoor titles, including the UK’s most modern range of mountain biking guidebooks, and award-winning climbing and mountaineering literature. We publish these books because we’re passionate about the outdoors, whether we’re climbing, cycling, hill walking and, well, anything outdoors! Our authors, photographers and other contributors are passionate too, which means that we can inspire you with the best writing, photography and trail routes available.
