Description

The Lake District's rich mix of rocks, gills and crags offers the scrambler a complex variety of routes, often well removed from the beaten track. Scrambling - ascending rock that is not usually difficult or steep enough to warrant the term 'rock climbing' - means you often hardly touch a path and rarely see other people at close quarters. This is a way of getting back to a wilder Lakeland and enjoying the freedom of rough mountain country. This guide covers Wasdale, Ennerdale and Buttermere, Borrowdale, Thirlmere, Patterdale, Mardale and Swindale.

Author Biography

Brian Evans, now retired after a career in printing and publishing, has enjoyed a lifetime's love of the outdoors. He has climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America, yet always returns to the Lake District, which has a special place in his affections. He prefers to explore out-of-the-way places, preferably with the added attraction of rock, to which he has been addicted since childhood. Brian has always enjoyed adventure sports including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing, skiing and alpine mountaineering. He still particularly enjoys rock climbing in all its forms, from long adventurous climbs where route-finding skills are necessary to single-pitch bolted sports climbs in the Mediterranean sun. Recently, with encouragement from his grandson, he has taken up mountain biking. Some of Brian's most memorable trips include multi-day alpine climbs such as the West face routes of the Dru and the Aiguille Noire; walking across the remote interior of Iceland; ski-backpacking in France; canoeing tumultous alpine rivers; and delving deep underground in the Vercors potholes. At home in Lancashire with his wife, Aileen, and collie, Meg, he enjoys drawing and painting, and planning the next adventurous trip.
