North Wales 100 Classic Climbs ticklist

contributed by Pete_Frost Oct/13

Routes featured in Steve Ashton's 1988 book "100 Classic Climbs in North Wales". Over 100 climbs from Diff to E2 - though some have been upgraded since the book came out. Some climbs are enchained, and some of Steve's "climbs" were actually three or four neighbouring routes.
