The first of a two-volume set of guides to scrambles in the Lake District, based on two of scrambling guides by one of Britain's best-known climbers, Brian Evans, now fully updated and merged into two definitive guides, for southern and northern Lakes. The Lake District's rich mix of rocks, gills and crags offers the scrambler a complex variety of routes, often well removed from the beaten track. Scrambling - ascending rock that is not usually difficult or steep enough to warrant the term 'rock climbing' - means you often hardly touch a path and rarely see other people at close quarters. This is a way of getting back to a wilder Lakeland and enjoying the freedom of rough mountain country. This guide covers Langdale, Coniston, Duddon, Eskdale, Longsleddale and Kentmere in 126 scramble routes graded 1 to 4. It also contains: advice on how to approach scrambling safely and with confidence; overview maps as well as sketch diagrams of the crags and routes; introductions to each area mentioned, indicating the type of rock and any recommendations; and nformation on the approach, character, grade and route of each scramble.
