Contributed by The Ivanator Jan/16 - This public ticklist has been seen 3,623 times

An attempt to identify the best UK routes in the Rockfax "Orange Spot" zone of F5a - F6a+. Chosen following Forum discussion, and scouring the UKC logbooks/voting for gems. Quality has been the main criteria for the choices, but there is an attempt to achieve some geographical spread to the routes as well.

Excellent route with some weird flowstone features.  © m88ulv
