The Borrowdale (FRCC) climbing guide is a fully revised guidebook to the Borrowdale Valley, probably the most beautiful valley in the Lake District.
Dividing the valley into six logical areas, the Borrowdale (FRCC) guidebook presents each area in a popular A5 format with specially commissioned showcase action images and clear OS based mapping. Providing really great clarity with full photo-diagram coverage, the guide showcases a variety of climbing styles often in stunning panoramic settings.
The valley is well-known for its accessible roadside climbing on crags such as Reecastle, the ever popular Shepherd's Crag, Quayfoot Buttress and the Bowderstone area, with most crags enjoying sun in the afternoon. There are also a number of classic mountain venues like Gillercomb and Raven Crag, Combe Gill where solitude and far reaching vistas over the Lakeland fells can be savoured. The less well-trodden places such as the Seathwaite buttresses, Combe Gill and Langstrath are given clear photo-plan coverage, which clarifies these complex areas of small immaculate outcrops. Exciting action images and the usual supplementary essential information such as parking and camping are included, together with a comprehensive crag selector.
The Fell & Rock Climbing Club is the premier rock climbing and mountaineering club in the English Lake District. The Club was founded in 1906/07 and has been publishing a definitive series of climbing guidebooks to the Lakes since 1922.
