Lakes Bouldering Rockfax - 2006

Lakes Bouldering: Rockfax

This guide does not cover as many areas as the LakesBloc guides but, as the name suggests, covers most of the popular areas within the Lake District National Park. There are few areas that this guide covers in more detail than LakesBloc, however, it does offer more in depth information for the Langdale Boulders, Thirlmere Boulders, Fleswick Bay Crag (although it does not cover the Fleswick Bay boulders) and Gouther Crag.

Langdale FRCC - 2013

Langdale: FRCC

This predominantly routes orientated definitive guide, offers a basic guide for the ever-popular Langdale Boulders, but is in truth is a bit of a let down. This guide has really taken a step backwards from the recent trend of covering bouldering properly in modern definitive area guides. It's missing a lot of good bouldering areas and even famous problems.

Boulder Britain - 2011

Boulder Britain: Ape Index

In terms of covering crags within the LakesBloc coverage zone, this is one of the most inclusive guidebooks available (albeit a select offering of climbs). That said, whilst it’s a useful guide to own, it’s a slightly pointless purchase it you’re after something predominantly for use in the Lakes and surrounding areas, as you can download (for free) much more definitive in depth guides for all the areas included via this site.
