Lakeland Fellranger - Mid-Western Fells

Lakeland Fellranger - Mid-Western Fells

by: Mark Richards
Mark Richards' authoritative Fellranger series of guides is an astonishing accomplishment, providing a comprehensive, up-to-date description of every path, crag, fell and valley in the Lake District. The series is the modern rucksack reference for the discerning fell adventurer, being both inspirational and informative. The books reveal the contemporary pattern of fell approaches, ascents and ridge routes and give walkers the freedom to explore the well-known peaks and the hidden areas of this beautiful region.
This guide covers the majestic Mid-Western Fells, held in the triangle of Great Langdale, Borrowdale and Wasdale and defined by four high passes. Two are pedestrian (Stake and Styhead) and two are tarmac roads (Hardknott and Wrynose). The group coalesces around the mighty Scafells, with fabulous wild dale approaches around the compass, promising rich pickings for the curious fell wanderer.
Each fell has its own dedicated chapter, and the variety of routes on the fell are carefully depicted on Harvey maps and fellscape diagrams. The scenic qualities of the landscape are illustrated by colour photographs and detailed summit panoramas that help underpin the reader's appreciation of these magnificent mountains. The Lakeland Fellrangers series combines the personal and artistic touch found in Wainwright's guides, with everything the modern walker needs. Author Mark Richards was one of Wainwright's protégés and with the Fellranger books he proves he is a worthy successor.
