This book 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, we are free to explore all the Lake District's rocky places.
There is no better way to spend a Lakeland day than climbing Scarfell Pike via the Esk Gorge, Thor's buttress and Ill Crags. This book offers a score of such expeditions, from valley floor to airy summit, with hands on rock almost all the way. Less arduous, but equally enjoyable, are the days on valley crags like Shepherd's or stand alone scrambles like Cam Crag Ridge. You can clamber on sunny Pikes Crag high above Wasdale Head; potter about above the oak wood of Duddon valley; or climb Kirk Fell the wet way, through the waterfalls of Ill Gill.
