'Kendal Wall's Best 100 climbs in Britain' ticklist

contributed by Kendal Wall Jul/13
This public ticklist has been seen 2,487 times

In a summer 2013 article there was a proposal of the 100 best climbs in Britain, only 5 of which were in the Lake District! Being based in the Lakes area we felt somewhat aggrieved, as were many of our customers here at Kendal Wall. So in response to this highly inaccurate list, we thought we would create our own list of the top 100 routes in Britain and as bias would have it, they are all in the Lakes area. This really is the ultimate Lakes tick list ranging from Middlefell Buttress (Diff) through to the impressive Impact Day (E9). There is also some sport climbing and of course to make the list up to a round 100 you need to climb the best indoor route in the area Kendal Main Wall (6a+)
