Wasdale and Langdale Fellranger books from Cicerone Product News

Calling all hillwalkers, peak-baggers and fell wanderers…

Walking the Lake District Fells invites you to discover a new perspective on the Lakeland fells. This new incarnation of the much-loved Fellranger series – which sees the books updated and trimmed to a more practical size – lets you plot your own course across the hallowed summits of the Lake District. They are not like other guidebooks. Rather than describing a single or limited number of routes to a particular destination, in Walking the Lake District Fells you'll find all the fells and all the routes, with clear descriptions of the terrain and features of interest to help you make informed decisions. Ranging from classic ascents to less traditional alternatives perfect for the wandering spirit, the routes are presented as numbered sections which can be combined to create infinite possibilities, allowing you to truly experience the freedom of the fells and the joy of exploration.

Wasdale

This guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 25 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from the Wasdale, Eskdale and Ennerdale valleys, with highlights including Scafell Pike, Great Gable and Pillar. Suggestions for longer ridge routes are also included.

This guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 25 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from the Great Langdale valley, Ambleside and Grasmere, with highlights including Scafell Pike, Bowfell, the Langdale Pikes and Helm Crag (the Lion and the Lamb). Includes suggestions for longer ridge routes.

Each of the eight planned volumes focuses on a different region or valley base: Wasdale, Langdale, Patterdale, Mardale and the Far East, Buttermere, Keswick and the North, Borrowdale and Coniston. The iconic summits are all include – Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, Great Gable, Skiddaw, Blencathra – as are a number of less well-known fells where you can find solitude and panoramic beauty. Why not take on the challenge of visiting all 230 summits? Each volume also includes a handful of classic ridge routes for longer fell days.

Mark Richards is a true fell connoisseur, and his enthusiasm and love of Lakeland is manifest on every page. In addition to the route descriptions and HARVEY mapping, the guide also includes Mark's wonderful linescape topos and summit panoramas. The result is both inspirational and informative, and is sure to appeal to anyone who loves the Lake District fells.

Sounds more than a little like the Wainwright guides from way back when...
