The latest guidebook from the Fell & Rock Climbing Club is the Central Buttress centenary edition of Scafell & Wasdale; it's now available from the BMC online shop.
Using the same format and design introduced in the Langdale guidebook last year, this new definitive guidebook looks great and covers some of the best mountain rock climbs in England, including the sublime rock climbs on Scafell, as well as the crags in Mosedale, Overbeck and Nether Wasdale.
Scafell’s barrel-shaped East Buttress is formidable, with universally superb hard traditional climbs; a must for climbers operating competently at VS and above.
Remote Wasdale Head is the traditional base and offers a hotel, bar, outdoor shop, toilets and a secluded camp site.
Extensive photoplan and photodiagram coverage, clear Harvey Maps, and many inspirational action shots complement the detailed route descriptions, to create a guidebook worthy of this important and historic climbing area.
