Scrambles in the Lake District South Vol 1

4 reviews   |  

The Scrambles in the Lake District South Vol 1 guidebook is part 1 of a 2 volume set of guides to scrambling routes in the Lake District.

Written by one of Britain's best-known climbers, Brian Evans, Scrambles in the Lake District South Vol 1 showcases the Lake District's rich mix of rocks, gills and crags that offer 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 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. In addition, a star system highlights the best routes. 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 information on the approach, character, grade and route of each scramble.

    Great service. Ordered the guide

    Great service. Ordered the guide book and a rope bag, it got delayed due to one item being out of stock. But as soon as it became available again, I received my items the next day, and got a RockRun chalk bag with a stress ball for free. On top of that the support team gets back to you very quickly. As I said - great service. I shop here on a regular basis, and will definitely continue to in the future.
