The Big Easy Mountain Route Club ticklist

contributed by cheque Mar/19

Back when I very first started climbing I stumbled upon the chronicles of a bunch of friends bumbling up easy mountain multipitches fuelled by tinned vegetarian all-day breakfasts.

I found it quite inspiring as the protagonists weren't daring supermen who onsighted everything they tried, they were clearly quite shit at climbing and had epics (or convinced themselves they were having epics) almost every time they went out even though they weren't on tough routes. It wasn't hard to imagine that I could not only follow in their footsteps but also have a much easier time than the authors did.

Years later I remembered about the site, found the text of it was still online (the pictures are available too if you use the Wayback Machine) and put a ticklist together on here to see how many of the routes I'd done over the years.
