Snow, ice and mixed climbs in the English Lake District Lake District Winter Climbs is a new guide to winter climbing in the English Lake District. It is the definitive guide compiled by the Fell and Rock Club.
Every known winter climb from every part of the Lake District is described - nearly 1000 routes in all. These range from classic high mountain gullies and buttresses on crags such as Scafell, Pillar and Great Gable, to frozen water-courses and icefalls including Great Gully on the Wasdale Screes, Launchy Gill, Low Water Beck and Cautley Spout. And of course, popular venues like Great End and the Eastern Coves of the Helvellyn Escarpment are described in detail. Included too are several routes in outlying Cumbria. Lake District Winter Climbs also includes sections on winter equipment, winter climbing and conservation, climbing walls, and accommodation and a first ascent list that includes mases of interesting historical research.
