ULMC Classics ticklist

contributed by Ellie Fuller Jun/15

A ticklist of climbs that have become University of Leicester Mountaineering Club classics over the years. Ranging from Diff and 3 to HVS and 6b+ with the odd boulder problem thrown in, it includes climbs from each location we visit and is intended to inspire climbers at every level and be achievable for anyone over their years as a ULMC member! - Looning even gives you that cheeky E1 tick ;) To be eligible for inclusion it should be one of those routes you excitedly tell people to get on when they go to the crag for the first time :)
To complete the ticklist all climbs must be led, first person to complete it gets a prize!
