This handy pocket-sized FRCC guidebook has comprehensive coverage of all the routes on Dow, neighbouring Blind Tarn Crag and, for the first time, records the climbs on five adjacent outcrops. Also included in this guidebook is a selection of twenty-one crags in the Coppermines valley, detailing the best climbs and conditions. 

Dow Crag above Coniston is simply one of the best mountain crags in England, with a splendid outlook and rough textured rock that is a total joy to climb on. Furthermore, despite being high in the mountains, it is very easily accessible via an easy walk from the Walna Scar road. Best savoured in the morning sunshine, it has climbs to suit all tastes and abilities, including classics such as Giant's Crawl (Diff), Eliminate A (VS) and Nimrod (E1) which have lost none of their allure with the passing years.

The Fell & Rock Climbing Club is the premier rock climbing and mountaineering club in the English Lake District. The Club was founded in 1906/7 and has been publishing a definitive series of climbing guidebooks to the Lakes since 1922/3 - this guide marks a century since it published its first guide, Doe Crag by George Bower.

The guidebook uses the familiar FRCC format, with detailed area maps, clear photo diagrams, concise descriptions and convenient QR codes. It is sumptuously illustrated with stimulating action images.
