All sorted properly now.

The routes are all labelled as checked by the moderator but the order is all over the place. For example the routes go L to R but Herfords Crack (near the R end) is 17 and Throsher (near the L end) is 53. Could they please be put in proper order (I think only the moderator can do this).
