This guide describes ascents of 28 Lake District fells that can be climbed from Borrowdale and the Newlands and Thirlmere valleys, including Catbells, a perennial favourite, and the mighty Scafell Pike, Great End and Great Gable. Easily accessed from Keswick, Borrowdale is a valley of exquisite natural beauty, with the lower wooded and heather-clad slopes giving way to sweeping moors and craggy heights. With such great variety within so small a vicinity, the fellwalker is spoilt for choice.
Unlike other guidebooks which describe a single or limited number of routes to a particular destination, the aim of the Walking the Lake District Fells series is to offer all the options. These are presented as numbered sections which can be combined to create infinite possibilities - from simple ascents to longer ridge routes. You'll find the classics and popular routes alongside less traditional alternatives perfect for the wandering spirit. The series gives you the freedom to devise your own routes.
