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 of the modern routes in the Hollywood Bowl is one of its best. Climb the low tufa and move up left to the edge of the Bowl before making some steep pulls to reach the hanging rail/flake. From the hanging rail pull leftwards to finish. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: Bit of dampness around the crux today, though the crimpy slot thing was dry. Doable but a touch harder than normal.

βeta: I reckon if you sit on ledge halfway its 7b+, if you plough on through its 7c.

βeta: So is this route's consensus 7b+? Just wondering as the Northern Limestone and Yorkshire limestone guidebook both has this down as 7c

Will Hunt 5 Jun, 2019 Lead dog Oof, I thought I was going to cruise this after the dogging go. Had one decent RP attempt falling at the top bulge. Didn't feel too far away from Illywacker in terms of difficulty. Illywacker may have the harder crux move but a good rest before you tackle it. Amazing sequence off the flake to the top.

thebigfriendlymoose 1 Jul, 2018 Lead RP 3rd tie-on: 1st clip-sticking; 2nd, tickled the undercut at the lip; 3rd, boom! Despite being described as low in the grade this felt pretty stiff - a long and butch sequence. Good route anyway, irrespective of grade considerations.
