Scrambles in the Lake District North

Price £12.00

The 110 graded scramble routes in this guidebook cover the Lake District regions of Wasdale, Ennerdale and Buttermere, Borrowdale, Thirlmere, Patterdale, Mardale and Swindale. Scrambling (rougher walking routes where you’ll need to use your hands) is becoming increasingly popular, and is a way of enjoying the wilder Lakeland.

The set are based on 'Scrambles in the Lake District' and 'More Scrambles in the Lake District', two of the original scrambling guides to the Lake District by one of Britain's best-known climbers. Continually reprinted for 20 years these guides have now been fully updated and merged into two definitive guides, for southern and northern Lakes. (For details of 'Scrambles in the Lake District South', see below.)

The Lake District's rich mix of rocks, gills and crags offers the scrambler a complex variety of routes, often well removed from the beaten track. Scrambling - ascending rock that is not usually difficult or steep enough to warrant the term 'rock climbing' - means you often hardly touch a path and rarely see other people at close quarters. This is a way of getting back to a wilder Lakeland and enjoying the freedom of rough mountain country.
