This guide describes ascents of 32 Lake District fells that can be climbed from the Buttermere, Crummock, Loweswater and Newlands valleys, including Haystacks, a perennial favourite, and the mighty Grasmoor. An exceptionally scenic corner of Lakeland, the mountains here are characterised by striking ridges, dramatic crags and heather-clad slopes.
The walking opportunities are as varied as they are pleasurable, promising spectacular views of the surrounding lakes, fells and valleys and many memorable adventures.
Unlike other guidebooks which describe a single or limited number of routes to a particular destination, the aim of the Walking the Lake District Fells series is to offer all the options. These are presented as numbered sections which can be combined to create infinite possibilities – from simple ascents to longer ridge routes. You’ll find the classics and popular routes alongside less traditional alternatives perfect for the wandering spirit.
The series gives you both the freedom to devise your own routes and the information to make informed decisions, thanks to the clear descriptions of the routes, terrain, hazards, interesting features and safe descent paths should the weather close in. Also included are a handful of classic ridge routes for longer fell days.
