Looking to update my Lake District guide from the FRCC 2003 volume and wondering if anyone would recommend /be able to compare the FRCC 2015 Lake District Rock guide by wired or the new Rockfax Lake District Climbs guide.
Size, weight, clarity or topos? Any one have any preference for one guide over the other?
The 2003 edition is better than either of the newer guides for taking out to the crags as it is much smaller and still has the info you'll need. As a coffee table / reference guide, either of the newer guides will be fine. I have the Wired guide and like it but it never goes to the crag with me
In reply to tomwalton: The 2003 selected is more practical for taking out on the hill. Between the Wired and the Rockfax, the Wired has a wider range of crags and more routes, the Rockfax is perhaps clearer in terms of layout. Both are bulked out with photos.
