Roaches HVS Challenge ticklist

contributed by MichaelGallimore Jun/15

This is a comprehensive list of the HVS routes described on the Rockfax website, plus another couple of classics from the BMC guide which I didn't want to omit. The routes span from Lower and upper tier through to skyline and the clouds. The challenge is to complete the entire list in a time period of your choosing, but It is possible in a day.
Award yourself a bronze medal for all the HVS routes on lower and upper tier, silver if you get through skyline too, and a very respectable gold if you make it through the clouds before nightfall.
