Part of the Walking the Lake District Fells series, this guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 28 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from the Borrowdale and Thirlmere valleys - both easily accessed from Keswick - with highlights including Catbells, Great Gable and Scafell Pike. Suggestions for longer ridge routes are also included.

Seasons

Year-round walking. Winter walks, even on the lower fells, are not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.

Centres

Keswick, Grange-in-Borrowdale, Rosthwaite, Seatoller, Stonethwaite, Seathwaite, Little Town (Newlands valley), Legburthwaite (St Johns in the Vale)

Difficulty

Straightforward ascents on sometimes clear, sometimes faint paths, and occasionally pathless terrain, to be used as a basis for readers' own walks. Navigational skills are needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling alternatives are always provided.

Must See

A fresh perspective on classic summits in the Lakes including Catbells, Scafell Pike, Great End, Great Gable, Glaramara and Walla Crag, and an inspiring introduction to lesser-known Lakeland fells such as Grange Fell and Bell Crags
