Authors - Al Phizacklea and Ron Kenyon
A selection of routes is also available in the FRCC's Lake District Rock.
New routes and comments are recorded at: Scafell, Wasdale
This updated guide covers the sublime rock climbs on Scafell, and in Mosedale, Overbeck and Nether Wasdale.
The action shots will inspire your plans, the clear Harvey Maps and extensive photoplan and photodiagram coverage will get you to your chosen climb.
The publication of this volume coincides with the centenary of the first ascent of the magnificent Central Buttress by Herford, Sansom and Holland on 20th April 1914.
The crags of Scafell are simply magnificent - you can climb in a high mountain setting surrounded by superb rock architecture on impeccable rock.
Scafell's barrel-shaped East Buttress is formidable, with universally supberb hard traditional climbs; a must for climbers operating competently at VS and above.
Mosedale and Nether Wasdale are something of an esoteric choice, although Buckbarrow at the entrance of the valley offers an interesting alternative when the high crags are out of condition.
