What is it that actually goes on there? Is it just pretty much everyone plans to go too the lakes for the weekend, then there's a party afterwards?
Unfortunately the Dow, Duddon & Slate guide is now out of print and the last few remaining copies in the shops will probably have gone by then. However, I have been scanning some of the crags and have put them on the FRCC website as free pdf downloads: These downloads don't include the new routes but these are available to print out elsewhere on the FRCC website.
