5.0 out of 5 stars Lake District Scrambles, 25 Feb 2009

This review is from: Scrambles in the Lake District - North: Volume 2: Northern Lakes: 90 Classic Routes (Cicerone British Mountains) (Paperback)
If you want a bit of extra excitement out of Lake District walking, this is a great book. Accurate and expert on both location and waymarking. Excellent companion to the Wainwright Logbooks and an excellent way of discovering additional facets to the Lake District away from the usual crowds and well-trodden routes.

This is a brilliant book and should be owned by all climbers and scramblers as it provides routes which I didnt know existed even after all my years spent in the lakes. Its a great way to see another side to the lake district

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant way to build on hill walks in the Lakes, 31 Mar 2014

This book is really nicely laid out, and offers a comprehensive rating system for the routes. This includes a difficulty rating (from 1 to 4) but also a quality rating (from 0 stars to 3 stars) which means that if you have limited time, you can focus on the 'classics' to make the most of your trip.

The routes are well described, and the book has a nice section at the start outlining some of the scrambling basics.

My only reservation, and the reason for giving 4 rather than 5 stars, is the maps. Each route is laid out with a sketch map, which is OK but not particularly accurate. Other books in the series, such as the Peak District scrambles, include mini-OS maps with the route laid out on top, These are a lot easier to read and mean the book can be referred to for a quick route check rather than unfolding the map! A minor quibble, but certainly an area to improve.

Overall though, a great book for those looking to do something other than walking in the Lakes.

Although too old to do many of these, its interesting to see how others have tackled it !

A well laid out book, as are all in this series,
