This is a selection of classic big routes, I have covered classic areas such as Wales, Scotland and the south coast for warming up. The dolomites and Chamonix areas for taking your new found skills to bigger, more serious environments. There are other classic routes in the Alps ranging in difficulty from easy snow plods to serious North Faces. There are some of the big walls of North America, ranging from easier 1 day routes to desperate routes requiring weeks to be spent on the wall. The climbing is a mixture of sport and trad, ice and mixed, free and aid. There are also via ferratas and scrambles. Getting to the top and back down again safely is paramount on most of the bigger routes on this list so ethics take a back seat, that is not to say go drilling bolts every metre but a few moves of french free would not be frowned upon.
