So you think your an Avon Climber? ticklist

contributed by Steve Claw Oct/20

Like many people I started climbing elsewhere in the country, and when I moved to Bristol I found Avon a scary experience, but I've grown to love it.

Climbing in Avon has its own style: Slow and steady, good footwork, and often quite bold.

Am I an Avon Climber?
This list is a mixture of my most memorable Avon area routes, along with those that are on my wish list.

Happy to add suggestions.
This is a reasonably hard list HVS and upwards.
