Lake District RockLake District Rock
Lake District Rock is a selective guidebook providing a first class selection of the very best routes in Lakeland. Lake District Rock is a FRCC publication under the Wired Guides brand. This guidebook was the category winner at the 2015 Banff Mountain Festival.
“Lake District Rock is an authoritative guide produced by the Fell and Rock Climbing Club. It comprises a selection of the best climbs to all the main cliffs of the Lake District. The photo diagrams are very clear and should get you to the start of your route without much fuss. The route descriptions are enticing and informative. And, of course, there is a sprinkling of inspirational photographs to get you going just in case you have missed the point of climbing in this beautiful part of England. This guide book is a classic of the genre, get it and climb in the Lakes – you won’t be disappointed.” – Victor Saunders, 2015 Book Jury
