First ascent list for Lancashire Rock guidebook

Posted by Niall Grimes on 12/08/2016

The new BMC Lancashire Rock guidebook is now out. As with last year's Peak Limestone North guidebook, first ascent details have been moved online. This is an article to direct you to this information.

Decisions such as this were not taken lightly, as this list provides a fascinating historical context for the routes you have done or aspire to. However, as guidebooks hold ever more information, and as topos become bigger and more useful, and as the demand for high-quality action shots grows, then something has to be done to stop the book that you carry to the crag or up the route from becoming overly large.

BUY: The Lancashire Rock guidebook from the BMC shop.

Hence the online First Ascents List. As it stands, this first ascent list has run to 62 pages, which would have significantly increased the bulk of the book in your back pocket. It is also hoped that this can allow first ascent information, a notoriously changeable series of “facts”, to be more dynamic and updatable as new information comes along.
