UK road to wide crack mastery ticklist

contributed by masa-alpin Sep/16

Definition of "wide" is a crack too wide for fist jam (for most people at least), excluding pure caving-type squeezing chimney routes. The wide crack must be the characteristic feature (usually crux) of the route. Most easy-grade routes are missing, and I am sure some of the hard and good routes, too, and clearly it is biased to Peak Grit � your feedback is most welcome!
