SCRAMBLES IN THE LAKE DISTRICT SOUTH
The 126 graded scramble routes in this guidebook explore the rocks and ghylls of the English Lake District in Langdale, Coniston, Duddon, Eskdale, Longsleddale and Kentmere. Scrambling (rougher walking routes where you'll need to use your hands) is becoming increasingly popular, and is a way of enjoying the wilder Lakeland.
The first of a two-volume set of guides to scrambles in the Lake District.
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.
