|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-kwn climbers, Brian Evans, w fully updated and merged into two definitive guides, for southern and rthern 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 t usually difficult or steep eugh 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.|
