Scrambling (rougher walking routes where you'll need to use your hands) is becoming increasingly popular, and is a way of enjoying the wilder Lakeland.

Scrambles & Easy Climbs in the Lake District is about the appreciation of rock, the exhilaration of climbing, and the sheer pleasure of doing it in some of the most beautiful places on earth. By discarding the arbitrary division between scrambles and rock-climbs, the books makes its readers free to explore all the Lake District's rocky places. 

The book, by two experienced rock-climbers, Jon Sparks and Judith Brown, also offers sound advice on how to get started and how to progress; routes that are safe in the wet, and those that should be saved for perfect conditions; and where to eat, drink and sleep between the ascents. But above all you'll find 69 routes, from scrambling Grade 1 to rock-climbing V Diff, which explore the many faces of Lakeland rock. 

There is no better way to spend a Lakeland day than climbing Scafell Pike via the Esk Gorge, Thor's Buttress and Ill Crags. Scrambles & Easy Climbs offers a score of such expeditions, from valley floor to airy summit, with hands on rock almost all the way.
