Long awaited guide to the Eastern Crags which covers Thirlmere, north to Carrock Fell and south to Kendal, east to Patterdale and beyond to the Far Eastern Fells. This area is home to some fantastic crags; Castle Rock, Raven Crag (both of them) and Dove to name but a few. And these in turn boast some of the best known climbs in the Lake District; Overhanging Bastion, Fast and Furious, Totalitarian, Liquid Engineering, the list goes on… and on.
 
Almost all these routes are ‘trad’, though a handful of quarry climbs are bolted. Grades range from Moderate to E9 (and F7b+ in the case of bolted routes). The line of nearly every route described is shown on a superb series of photodiagrams; not only a great aid to finding your climb, but a real source of inspiration when it comes to choosing which crag to visit.
 
In addition there are sections on just about everything a climber might find useful in a guidebook, from a list of Climbing Walls for a wet day, selected boulder problems on Carrock Fell and in Kentmere, to a comprehensive History and First Ascents List. Interspersed throughout is a superb selection of action photographs.
 
Written by Al Davis and Nick Wharton.
 
Plastic cover, 17cm x 10.5cm, marker ribbon, 520 pages.
 
Published 2011 (too early to include full coverage of Bram Crag Quarry for which you need Lake District Rock)
