Lake District Climbs

Lake District Climbs provides comprehensive coverage of the very best traditional climbing in the mountains and valleys of English Lake District. The range and variety of climbing available is outstanding, from low-level single-pitch outcrop cragging to long multi-pitch mountain routes. There is something here for climbers of all abilities from experts to those just starting out.

Out of print:
Probably the best crag in the Lakes, it has classic routes at every grade. The notoriety that this crag is cold comes from those idiots who insist on starting their routes in shorts and t-shirts. Always carry (and wear!)an extra sweater.
