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.

Rockfax Description
The first section of the route is often dirty, but the upper section can be reached from Witch. Start just right of the Witch corner at some cracks below a wedged block at 15m. Climb to the block - often dirty. Continue to a pinnacle and move up into a corner above. Climb up another short corner to an overhang and move left to a ledge. Tricky moves right up the slab gain the top. © Rockfax

Tom.Priestley 13 Sep, 2016 Lead O/S Dirty and slightly run out bottom part but all the climbing from the stuck block is clean and very well protected with IMPs and small cams. Good climb. Had to go left at the top as I got rained on.
