Guide to 106 scrambling routes in the south of the Lake District, covering Langdale, Coniston, Eskdale, Patterdale & High Street. A comprehensive collection of scrambles on crags and gills, which are linked together to form 24 first-class mountain days. The carefully graded routes range from scrambling grade 1 to climbing grade V Diff, so there is something for beginners as well as veteran mountaineers. Rock climbing equipment is needed for more difficult routes.
Each scramble is clearly described with notes about grade, quality, aspect and approach, with colour maps and topos to aid navigation. There is information on safety and equipment, and listings of scrambles by location and grade allow the reader to assemble their own tailor-made combination of routes.
The Lake District is one of the most scenic areas in the world and this guide offers routes in previously unexplored corners of the region alongside popular classics such as Jack's Rake, Esk Gorge and Pinnacle Ridge.
