The Horseshoe Top 15 Challenge ticklist

contributed by Jamiewalkerjones Mar/19

Climb the top 15 most ticked routes at the magnificent horseshoe quarry after work on a Friday night.

They might not be the best routes, in fact I know they are not the best, but they are popular. One gets what one deserves I suppose....

For the full challenge tick, observe these style notes:
--- Best climbed as a pair, starting at 7pm after work on Friday evening.
--- Climbing by headtorch and in the rain adds extra points.
--- Sleep in your car or bivvy.
--- Beer optional. Mulled wine even
--- Save the trickier ones until the morning if you like but you've got to have it all wrapped up ASAP on Saturday. You've got to take that crap to the tip/redecorate the spare bedroom/be home to meet the Ocado man. LIFE!
--- Clipstick allowed, in fact positively encouraged.
--- As is going 'off route'
--- As is climbing the wrong route
--- As is dogging. And falling off. And even aiding.
--- Basically, it's a challenge for foolish mortals who don't get out often, but when they do... it's raining, and they've got to be back before lunch.
