Scrambles in the Lake District - North: Wasdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Borrowdale, Blencathra & Thirlmere

A comprehensive collection of 100 scrambling routes in the north of the English Lake District, covering Wasdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Borrowdale, Blencathra and Thirlmere.

It presents a variety of scrambles on crags and gills, which are linked together to form 25 longer day outings. The carefully graded routes range from grade 1 to climbing grade V Diff, so there is something for beginners as well as veteran mountaineers.

This guide includes popular routes such as Sharp Edge, Cam Crag Ridge and Sphinx Ridge, dramatic gills like Sandbed and Ill Gills, and 28 classic rock climbs including Corvus, Needle Ridge, Grey Knotts Face and Steeple's East Buttress.

Each scramble is clearly described with notes about grade, quality and aspect. Maps and colour topos for crag scrambles aid navigation. There is information on equipment and safety and an appendix listing the scrambles in grade order to allow the reader to assemble their own tailor-made combination of routes.
