Eastern Crags guidebook now in stock

Posted by Tony Ryan on 25/07/2011

The latest addition to the Fell & Rock Climbing Club’s series of definitive climbing guidebooks to the Lake District covers the crags of the Eastern Fells.

The Eastern Fells: Thirlmere, north to Carrock Fell and south to Kendal, east to Patterdale and beyond to the Far Eastern Fells, are home to some fantastic crags; Castle Rock, Raven Crag (both of them) and Dove to name but a few. And these in turn boast some of the best known climbs in the Lake District; Overhanging Bastion, Fast and Furious, Totalitarian, Liquid Engineering – the list goes on… and on.

Almost all these routes are ‘trad’, though a handful of quarry climbs are bolted. Grades range from Moderate to E9 (and F7b+ in the case of bolted routes). The line of nearly every route described is shown on a superb series of photodiagrams; not only a great aid to finding your climb, but a real source of inspiration when it comes to choosing which crag to visit.

In addition there are sections on just about everything a climber might find useful in a guidebook, from a list of Climbing Walls for a wet day, to a comprehensive History and First Ascents List. Interspersed throughout is a superb selection of action photographs.

To purchase your copy of Eastern Crags go to the BMC online shop, or call the Membership Services Team on 0161 445 6111.

BMC member price: £16.20
Non-member price: £18.00

The Fell & Rock Climbing Club has been publishing definitive climbing guidebooks to the Lake District since 1922. Recent additions to the series include guidebooks to Gable & Pillar and Buttermere & St Bees.
