/ New Langdale Guide
Just got the new guide
Its the new format, full of great photos and comprehensive route descriptions.
Turns out what i really wanted was musty, old, linen bound with delightfully vague route descriptions and pencil drawings.
Anyway on the bright side only another 15-20 yrs to the next edition

Ah... now there I can help you!
Does the description of Oak Tree Wall at Raven make any more sense? ;) I recall getting lost on that 20 years ago and the last guide didn't seem to have made much more sense of it.
Look forward to seeing it anyway; about time.
recently bought a 1950's langdale guide - its brilliant, I can almost climb the hardest thing in the book and as there are only 10 climbs i might even finish the thing
I was going to ask exactly the same question about Original Route on the same cag. Got to go back and make more sense of that one!!
includes great pic of raven crag butress which should help but its a funny route
i think that is Original Route
the pictures in the new guide will sort out that whole confusing slab
That's the way I did it but I will interested to see the piccies.
Style aside, does anyone know whether there is a substantial change to the route coverage since the previous guide ?
