Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

βeta: A good route, some stiff pocket pulling leads to awkwardly placed gear and a tricky upper section.

βeta: My first E3 :-) Hard pocket pulling at the start leads to slopey breaks and just-adequate gear. The slabby top-half is only 'easier climbing' if you can climb slabs! I found it scary (but not sustained) climbing all the way to the top-out...

climberchristy 26 Apr, 2015 Lead G/U Fell off top move near top on first try so missed onsight. Pulled rope and repeated clean ground up. A good line. Yes it's contrived at the start but the move on the pockets is really good. Then the climbing through the breaks above is also good. Quite challenging still higher up if you're not very tall and if you are strict about staying on the line.
