Lake District: Ridge Walks is the title of an already popular new book in the Top 10 walks series.
Here’s a recent review from Outdoor Focus magazine:
“What is the Lake District’s finest ridge walk? Many would plump for the knife-edge of the aptly named Sharp Edge on Blencathra, or the rocky arete of Striding Edge on Helvellyn. Others might go for the softer grassy ridges of the Fairfield or Kentmere Horseshoes.
Whatever your taste, it’s covered in the eleventh of Northern Eye’s beautifully produced little guides to the Lake District fells by Carl Rogers, who also supplied most of the sumptuous photographs.
But the other thing that the photographs graphically show is the serious levels of erosion on routes like the Fairfield Ridge, the approach to Grisedale Pike via Sleet How and on St Sunday Crag on the Deepdale Horseshoe.
So it’s good to see lesser-known and less frequented routes like High Street via Rough Crag, and the Littledale Round (Robinson-Hindscarth-Scope End from Newlines) in the guide.”
