/ Ticklists - who's done what?
there's a ton of niceties that need doing on the logbooks (like when you tick a climb in your wishlist - it's a pain to remove it) THink they have a long list for logbook updates but its not their top priority ATM
Ive completed 2 out of the 20ish lists i have on here, one taking 8 months the other 9 years.
Haven't yet completed my own added lists but 2 are at 84% so nearly there. :)
As a one time fanatic I have done many more routes than I have logged - I didn't start using the logbooks until I had almost stopped climbing.
For example I believe I have done 499 of the Eastern Grit Top 500 but only have 218 currently ticked,
That's a bit like Nibali winning the Tour de France when Froome and Contador were out of it! You can only beat the people who are there! :oD
Not that it's a competition, of course!
I can remember it taking me months to fill out my logbook when I decided I would do it. It suddenly seemed a really easy way to keep a record for my own interest.
I've got three where I'm one route short :-) The easiest one to complete will be The Tremadog Vs where I've got Valerie's Rib to do. The other two lists are Classic Wilton Workout and Safe Lakes E2/3s.
Wow. What's the one you haven't done?
BTW i have completed 1 of about 20 lists but many of them are private i make for a trip
and some just idle curosity so have done 0 or few (helps find the lists)
I'll give you one guess :-)
I too have only completed one, and it's the massively unimpressive Top 23 UKC Climbed Climbs. But still, only 23 other people are shown as having done it.
I've only done 60% of my own Rog Wilko's Neglected Gems in The Lakes, but since only 13 have subscribed to it and it includes a lot of esoterica it's no wonder no-one has completed it.
Otherwise I've only ticked 75%+ of 3 lists.
