The guidebook includes classic routes such as Ill Gill, Kirkfell; Broad Stand, Scafell; Striding Edge; and Pillar Rock. Each section includes a map showing the location of the scrambles, and routes are accompanied by information on the best approach, along with a sketch diagram of the crag and the route line.
