Crack apprenticeship - Highland North ticklist

contributed by masa-alpin Jun/15

List of jamming crack routes in northern Highland - Skye/Torridon or north. The criterion is the meat of the route must be a crack, in which jamming is most helpful. I have picked up most of the routes just by looking at the guides, mainly "Scottish Rock" Vol.2 (2014) by Gary Latter (compiled during (many!) wet days on islands in Outer Hebrides), so I am not sure how "jamming-crack"-like each route is! Your comment is welcome - message me, please!
