Bowland Badass Climbs in order of appearance

With the excruciating crawl of the countdown clock commenced to Badass day on 6 July 2013 we’ve decided to re-post the write-ups of each of our categorized Bowland Badass climbs. This year we’ve added 3 climbs that we left out last year due to reasons of laziness and ineptitude. This means that you’ll have a total of 30 climbs to drool over/contemplate with gloomy dread in accordance with your personal preference over the next few months. The table below shows the grisly cast of leg numbing carbuncles in their monstrous entirety. You can click on an individual climb to get through to its write up, or just contemplate them all in rapturous wonder. Once again, bear in mind that the Bowland Badass Climbs only represent 50% of the total climbing on the Badass…… It is NOT FLAT! The ups and downs are relentless, and there is no place to hide.
