Classic Rock Climbs of Great Britain by Bill Birkett ticklist

contributed by Mark Collins Apr/11

It's the first climbing book I ever bought in a discount book shop in Skelmersdale's famous shopping centre, no not Sandy Lane The Concourse of course. It took me a decade to complete my first route (Black and Tans?) and I shall probably never complete the list, but hey who cares as long as it takes me to some more great places!
