About this book

Lakeland Fellranger guidebook by Mark Richards covering 22 summits in the Mid-Western Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks, old and new, in the triangle between Great Langdale, Borrowdale and Wasdale. The group centres on the two highest hills in England, the mighty Scafell Pike and Sca Fell, with their many wild dale approaches. Author Mark Richards combines his passion for the Lake District and artistic flair with all the information the experienced walker needs to explore and enjoy the Mid-Western Fells. For each of the 22 hills covered, this guide offers a dedicated chapter, with full descriptions of a range of new and old routes, full-colour Harvey maps and clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs. It is one of the first four to be published in Cicerone's 8-volume Lakeland Fellranger series, which provides a comprehensive new guide to the fells of the English Lake District, with a selection of new routes up more than 230 hills.
