Guide to 100 scrambling routes climbing the rocks and gills of the English Lake District, covering the northern area including Wasdale, Buttermere, Patterdale and Blencathra. The carefully graded routes range from scrambling grade 1 to climbing grade V Diff, so there is something for beginners as well as veteran mountaineers - rock climbing equipment is advised for more difficult routes. Each scramble is clearly described with notes about grade, quality, aspect and approach, with colour maps and topos to aid navigation. There is information on safety and equipment, and listings of scrambles by location and grade allow the reader to assemble their own tailor-made combination of routes.

The Lake District is one of the most scenic areas in the world and 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.
