Proper Cracks UK ticklist

contributed by Andy Moles Aug/19

This is a compilation of routes that don't just follow a crack, and which feature more than just the occasional hand jam or finger lock - routes which really demand a bit of straight-in crack technique.

I have not climbed all of these, so if any are commonly laybacked or actually have footholds all the way, do let me know.
