Steve Ashton's 100 Classic Climbs The Lake District ticklist

contributed by LakesWinter Jul/19

All the routes from Steve Ashton and Stephen Reid's classic guidebook to the Lakes.
Three of the routes in the original selection have fallen down - North Crag Eliminate, Deer Bield Buttress and Deer Bield Crack. I've not added these routes to this ticklist.
