Scrambles in the Lake District
Volume 2, The North
The Lake District’s rich mix of rocks, gills and crags offers the scrambler a complex variety of routes, often well removed from the beaten track. Scrambling – climbing rock that is not usually difficult or steep enough for its ascent to warrent the term ‘rock climbing’ – is a way of getting back to a wilder Lakeland and enjoying the freedom of rough mountain country.
This revised guide includes route notes for 110 graded scrambles in the northern Lake District arranged by area; an introduction to each area, indicating the type of rock and any recommendations; information on the approach, character, grade and route of each scramble; area maps and sketch diagrams of the crags and routes and advice on how to approach scrambling safely and with confidence.
