Review

'Helicopter-borne FRCC crag paparazzi and Cicerone join forces to produce a gorgeous-looking compendium of Lakeland Winter esoterica. So who cares if it hardly ever snows? It makes Cumbria look like Canada; something to drool over by a log fire with tumbler of whisky and dream of perfect Lakeland neve.' (Climb Magazine / February 07) 'First impressions are that the guide is robust and follows the familiar easy-to-use FRCC format. And as soon as I opened the guide and started thumbing through its pages I felt excited by the superb pictures of a climbing area that is all too easily dismissed in the winter by climbers heading for more reliable Scottish terrain. Unusually, for a British winter guidebook, crag diagrams are replaced by colour phototopos, a luxury that has paid off, showing clear lines that are easy to follow on the page. Very few guidebooks really suck me in, this Lakeland winter guide can now be added to this special category. I know reviews are meant to highlight the good and the bad, but I cannot see anything but good in this guide. I truly love it' (Climb magazine / March 07) 'The Lake District isn't the first place Irish climbers would think of for winter climbs. But this guidebook with nearly 1000 routes, very many of them modern, show that global warning hasn't had a serious affect on the Lakeland winter. The guide covers a wide variety of climbs, with routes in nearly every corner of Lakeland, and a few in the Howgill Fells. The diagrams are excellent, and the photographs are equally good. It is altogether a really lovely book, good to handle in solid plastic binding, and if like me, you know the Lake District, a good read. A worthy publication for the FRCC centenary' (Irish Mountain Log / Spring 2007) Check out the various website reviews by following the links below: Ukclimbing.com Mountaindays.net

Synopsis

This new guide to winter climbing in the English Lake District is a joint production by the Fell and Rock Climbing Club and Cicerone Press. It is the definitive guide to winter climbing in the English Lake District and presents the climbs and crags in a fresh new format. Every known winter climb from every part of the Lake District is described - nearly 1000 routes in all. These range from classic high-mountain gullies and buttresses on crags such as Scafell, Pillar, and Great Gable to frozen watercourses and icefalls including Great Gully on the Wasdale Screes, Launchy Gill, Low Water Beck and Cautley Spout. And, of course, popular venues like Great End and the Eastern Coves of the Helvellyn Escarpment are described in detail. Included too are several routes in outlying Cumbria. There are also sections on winter equipment, winter climbing and conservation, climbing walls, accommodation, and a first ascent list that includes masses of interesting historical research. All ruggedly bound in a handy pocket-sized format.
