Scrambles & Easy Climbs in the Lake District is about the
appreciation of rock, the exhilaration of climbing, and the sheer
pleasure of doing it in some of the most beautiful places on earth. By
discarding the arbitrary division between scrambles and rock-climbs, the
books makes its readers free to explore all the Lake District's rocky
The book, by two experienced rock-climbers, Jon Sparks
and Judith Brown, also offers sound advice on how to get started and how
to progress; routes that are safe in the wet, and those that should be
saved for perfect conditions; and where to eat, drink and sleep between
the ascents. But above all you'll find 69 routes, from scrambling Grade 1
to rock-climbing V.Diff, which explore the many faces of Lakeland rock.
There is no better way to spend a Lakeland day than climbing
Scafell Pike via the Esk Gorge, Thor's Buttress and Ill Crags. Scrambles
& Easy Climbs offers a score of such expeditions, from valley floor
to airy summit, with hands on rock almost all the way.
