Looking for classic routes? Want some good ticks? This is where to look, the UK climbing Top Tens. They're just recommendations, think of each of the lists as a particular climbers nominations for the ten best routes at a crag/area, an alternative opinion to the stars in the guidebooks. The crags and routes aren't listed in any particular order.

Thanks go to John Mitchell for collecting the first few lists to start things off.

If you think you know a crag or area well enough to give some recommendations, send in your Top Ten. They don't have to be hard routes, just enjoyable ones. A general comment on the selection criteria is useful, for instance the sub-set of grades (E5 climbers aren't going to nominate many VSs, and vice versa), the style of climbing ("I enjoy jug-fests", "I love slabs", etc). And especially do tell us why you think they're so good.
All of these have been updated with links to the crags they mention. More please! And tell us if you've got pictures of any of these routes which you'd like featured alongside them. It doesn't have to be your top ten - now you can show off on other peoples' ticklists!
