This new FRCC guidebook takes the best rock climbs in the English Lake District and presents them in a fresh new format.
Fully revised and updated maps to help you find the crags. Detailed colour topo-diagrams to help you find the routes.
More than 500 classic rock climbs on 64 superb crags are described. The choice of routes covers the full grade spectrum from Difficult to E8, with the majority of climbing in the popular VS to E2 range. Classic high mountain venues such as Scafell, Dow, Gimmer and Pillar Rock, low-lying outcrops including Shepherd's Crag, Castle Rock, Raven Crag and Wallowbarrow, and good wet weather alternatives like St Bees, Armathwaite, and Chapel Head (none of them previously covered in an FRCC Guide), together with information on Bouldering, Crags for Groups, Climbing Walls and Accommodation, are all ruggedly bound together in a handy pocket-sized format.

AwardsLakeland Book of the Year Awards 2004 - Titus Wilson Prize
Lake District Rock won the Titus Wilson Prize for guidebooks in the prestigious Lakeland Book of the year Awards 2004 hosted by the Cumbria Tourist Board and Hunter Davies.
The award is very apt, as the late Oliver Turnbull, for many years owner of Titus Wilson's Printers and Publishers of Kendal, took the photo of the Editor on Eliminate A on Dow Crag (p114) and also appears (anonymously) as the figure admiring the sun setting over Wasdale on page 21.
