After beginning to enjoy climbing cracks a whole lot as of late. The thought has crept to mind. What are the best sport crack climbs here in the UK? Any especially stand out from the others?
> Question answered: Cave Route Left (7c+)
Cave Route Right (7b+)? One of the best of its grade in the country.
Both Cave Routes are great routes and mega lines but don't actually require much full on crack climbing technique.
For bolted cracks in the north of England its hard to beat the 3 at Lorry Park, proper crack testpieces and really good, in particular Supercrack (7a) which fully deserves its 3 stars.
At the same crag On the Road (6c+) is more of a crack in an overhanging corner requiring laybacking and bridging rather than full on crack climbing but is excellent, very imposing and gives great physical climbing.
