'Steve Ashton's 100 Classic Gritstone Climbs' ticklist

contributed by pdhu May/11
This public ticklist has been seen 7,630 times

This mammoth ticklist is based on the eponymous guidebook by Mr. Ashton. It actually contains around 350 routes as the book "could more accurately have been titled '100 Classic Buttresses, Crags and Other More-or-less Definable Groups of Gritsone Climbs'". But I think that has less of a ring to it. From well-polished classics to obscure clefts high on the bleakest of moors, there's a lifetime's worth of wrestling with the rough tough stuff to go at here. Expect to spend a lot of time embroiled in the lost dark art of chimneying...
