Cicerone Lake District Winter Climbs
- Colour: N/a
This new guide to winter climbing in the English Lake District is a joint production by the Fell and Rock Climbing Club and Cicerone Press. It is the definitive guide to winter climbing in the English Lake District and presents the climbs and crags in a fresh new format. Every known winter climb from every part of the Lake District is described ? nearly 1000 routes in all. These range from classic high-mountain gullies and buttresses on crags such as Scafell, Pillar, and Great Gable to frozen watercourses and icefalls including Great Gully on the Wasdale Screes, Launchy Gill, Low Water Beck and Cautley Spout. And, of course, popular venues like Great End and the Eastern Coves of the Helvellyn Escarpment are described in detail. Included too are several routes in outlying Cumbria. There are also sections on winter equipment, winter climbing and conservation, climbing walls, accommodation, and a first ascent list that includes masses of interesting historical research. All ruggedly bound in a handy pocket-sized format.
