Big days out on long classic routes are surely one of the great experiences of UK climbing, and the mountain crags of the Lake District hold routes as fine as anywhere in the country. If you are looking for inspiration, for new crags, exciting routes and a fresh view, the new select guide to the Lakes is the perfect place to find it.
Lake District Rock, produced by the Fell & Rock Climbing Club guidebook team, contains over 1500 climbs on over 100 crags and features clear maps, crisp photodiagram coverage for every crag and sensational images. The banners and sidebar reflect the familiar FRCC colours making it easy to find each section. Dow, Coppermines & Slate, Duddon & Eskdale and Borrowdale – receive the ‘modern’ treatment and Bramcrag Quarry has a complete makeover with all of the recent developments featured.
This new edition of Lake District Rock, covering the best that Lakeland has to offer the climber, is in stock now. It replaces the best-selling 2003 edition as the guide of choice for visiting climbers. Jointly published with Wired guides – a collaboration of publishers including the BMC, Fell & Rock Climbing Club, Scottish Mountaineering Club, Climbers’ Club and Yorkshire Mountaineering Club – this guide is the first of an exciting new series that will cover the whole of Britain.
