Scrambles in the Lake District - North PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Scrambles in the Lake District - North free pdf The Lake District's rich mix of rocks, gills and crags offers the scrambler a complex variety of routes, often well removed from the beaten track. Scrambling - ascending rock that is not usually difficult or steep enough to warrant the term 'rock climbing' - means you often hardly touch a path and rarely see other people at close quarters. This is a way of getting back to a wilder Lakeland and enjoying the freedom of rough mountain country. This guide covers Wasdale, Ennerdale and Buttermere, Borrowdale, Thirlmere, Patterdale, Mardale and Swindale.

About Brian Evans

Brian Evans, now retired after a career in printing and publishing, has enjoyed a lifetime's love of the outdoors. He has climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America, yet always returns to the Lake District, which has a special place in his affections. He prefers to explore out-of-the-way places, preferably with the added attraction of rock, to which he has been addicted since childhood. Brian has always enjoyed adventure sports including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing, skiing and alpine mountaineering. He still particularly enjoys rock climbing in all its forms, from long adventurous climbs where route-finding skills are necessary to single-pitch bolted sports climbs in the Mediterranean sun. Recently, with encouragement from his grandson, he has taken up mountain biking. Some of Brian's most memorable trips include multi-day alpine climbs such as the West face routes of the Dru and the Aiguille Noire- walking across the remote interior of Iceland- ski-backpacking in France- canoeing tumultous alpine rivers- and delving deep underground in the Vercors potholes. At home in Lancashire with his wife, Aileen, and collie, Meg, he enjoys drawing and painting, and planning the next adventurous trip.
