LAKES SPORT & SLATE - A DIFFERENT ANGLE ON LAKE DISTRICT ROCK
There is more to the Lake District than trad climbing and the LAKES SPORT & SLATE guide brings together the sports climbing in Cumbria and North Lancashire together with that on the slate highlighting recent developments in the area..
From the limestone crags of the South Lakes of Chapel Head Scar, Scout Scar, Humphrey Head and Millside Scar to the sandstone at St Bees, by the sea, and Coudy Rocks in the Eden Valley, as well as the newly redeveloped Bramcrag Quarry which now has 200 or so mid-grade and justly popular routes. For the slateheads there is a mix of trad and sports routes but also dry-tooling and deep water soloing to add to the slatefest
LAKES SPORT & SLATE includes an interesting mix of climbing styles on four distinctive rock types- well worth acquiring and having on your bookshelf!
