Lake District Winter Climbs (FRCC)

The Lake District Winter Climbs is a guide to the snow, ice and rock climbing that the Lakes has to offer in the winter months.

Known all over the world as an area of outstanding beauty and tranquility, the Lake District is no less stunning in winter than in the warmer months. Showcasing the world of snow, ice and rock, the Lake District Winter Climbs offers a challenging slant to a well-loved landscape. Ridges become gravity-defying cornices, crags are sheer with ice and snow, frothing waterfalls in gullies become static sculptures; all the more alluring because the climb is different every year.

The Lake District Winter Climbs guide is divided into five different areas, with clear maps to find the crags and colour photo-topos to locate all the intricate routes. The routes range from classic high-mountain gullies and buttresses on crags such as Scafell, Pillar, and Great Gable, to frozen watercourses and icefalls including Great Gully on the Wasdale Screes, Launchy Gill, Low Water Beck and Cautley Spout. And, of course, popular venues like Great End and the Eastern Coves of the Helvellyn Escarpment are described in detail.

With additional sections on winter equipment, ethics and conservation, climbing walls, accommodation and a first-ascent list, Winter Climbs in the Lake District is an indispensable companion to any climber counting the days to the first snow.
