This public ticklist has been seen 4,510 times

According to the logbook graphs of all users HS is the average grade climbed in the UK. But average climbers deserve fantastic climbs too, so here are 50 of the very best... List compiled from a host of Forum suggestions, a few routes not graded HS in UKC logbooks, but all appear as HS in recent guidebooks, except the sprinkling of Lakeland MVS routes which are included to ensure the birthplace of British rock climbing has representation in line with its importance.
