Borrowdale is probably the most beautiful valley in the Lake District and offers the rock climber a huge variety of climbing styles often in stunning panoramic settings. The valley is well-known for accessible roadside climbing on crags such as Reecastle, the ever popular Shepherd's Crag, Quayfoot Buttress and the Bowderstone area, with most crags enjoying sun in the afternoon. There are also a number of classic mountain venues like Gillercomb and Raven Crag, Combe Gill where solitude and far reaching vistas over the Lakeland fells can be savoured.
This 2016 Borrowdale guide from the FRCC (Fell and Rock Climbing Club) is fully revised. The valley is divided into six logical areas presented with specially commissioned showcase action images and clear OS based mapping. The popular A5 format provides greater clarity and there is full photodiagram coverage.
The less well-trodden places such as the Seathwaite buttresses, Combe Gill and Langstrath are given clear photoplan coverage which clarifies these complex areas of small, immaculate outcrops. Exciting action images and the usual supplementary essential information such as parking and camping are included together with a comprehensive crag selector.
The Fell & Rock Climbing Club is the premier rock climbing and mountaineering club in the English Lake District. The Club was founded in 1906-07 and has been publishing a definitive series of climbing guidebooks to the Lakes since 1922.
Fittingly, this new guidebook is dedicated to the memory of the late Martin Weir, formerly of Shepherd's Cafe at High Lodore.
