World Class Britain & Ireland ticklist

contributed by Andy Moles Jul/19

The finest routes on these islands, viewed through the lens of a well-travelled foreign climber who wants to sample only the best. This person may be of any ability, so the grade of route is not important, but they have climbed at a wide variety of the best destinations in the world, and they are hard to impress. In other words, these are routes that you could recommend to anyone with the appropriate skill to climb them, assuming the right season and conditions, and be confident they will have a good time.

A work in progress, further nominations welcome.
