Lancashire's Finest ticklist

contributed by Calder Jun/11

The best routes from around Lancashire - including routes on natural and quarried grit, as well as limestone.

Currently, there are a good few routes with 2 stars that probably deserve 3. I'm thinking of Cave Route (Hoghton), Mustard (Round Barn), Ourang-otang (Cadshaw), and such like. Maybe the new guide will rectify this, but in the meantime don't be put off - just because no-one climbs there doesn't mean it's crap. Not necessarily, anyway.

I've tried to include stuff from all around Lancashire, but if I've forgotten anything let me know.
