The Scrambles in the Lake District North Vol 2 guidebook is a revised and updated edition of the two-volume set of guides to scrambles in the Lake District, by one of Britain's best-known climbers, Brian Evans. 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.
Each section includes a map showing the location of the scrambles, and routes are accompanied by information on the best approach, along with a sketch diagram of the crag and the route line. The book includes invaluable advice on equipment, safety, rope techniques, and scrambling techniques, as well as notes on access and conservation.
Scrambling (rougher walking routes where you'll likely need to use your hands) is a way of enjoying the wilder Lakeland and can take you away from the crowds, even in the most popular parts of the Lake District.
This guidebook presents 110 gill and crag scrambling routes in the north of the English Lake District, with sections covering Wasdale, Ennerdale and Buttermere, Borrowdale, Thirlmere, Patterdale, Mardale and Swindale. Each route is graded from Grade 1, straightforward scrambling, through Grades 2 to 4, where the use of a rope is recommended. In addition, a star system (1 to 3 stars) highlights the best routes.
