Guidebooks

Lakes Bouldering

The first dedicated bouldering guidebook to the Lake District, spanning a range of areas largely in the National Park and all north and west of the M6 junction 36. The guide is intended to be useful to the visiting climber looking for a day or evening's light bouldering just as much as the hard-core local with decent coverage for the V1 and V9 boulderer alike.

Nice blocs and good lines in a lovely picnicky location, but the rock texture is pretty grim. Pulling on some of the holds is about as much fun as flossing your buttcrack with barbed wire.
