FRCC Climbing Guide Book: Buttermere & St Bees (last published 2008)
Photodiagrams by Phil Rigby
Diagrams by Al Phizacklea
The second in the new series of FRCC guidebooks to rock climbing in the Lake District featuring colour photodiagrams for virtually every crag featured.
This guide covers Buttermere, including its main venues of High Crag, Eagle Crag and Grey Crag, the newly developed Raven Crag on the Ennerdale face of High Stile, the less known venue of the Newlands Valley, and the sunny sandstone cliffs of St Bees with their modern bolted routes and trad adventure horrors.
A selection of boulder problems, both in Buttermere and at St Bees, is also included.
Also features some great action photography and many historical pictures from the FRCC archives.
In recent years, 10% of the profit from FRCC guidebook sales has been donated to various national bodies, such as the BMC Access & Conservation Trust and the National Trust, for use in conservation and access work in the Lake District.
Much of the remaining profit is channelled back into future guidebook production, with the high-selling areas supporting the lesser selling ones.
The guidebook production team are all volunteers and are not paid for the many, many hours of work involved.
For orders below £30 it's currently a very reasonable £3.50 charge.
