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
Typical of Rubicon; short, hard and becoming harder as bits drop off. The difficulties are confined to the steep middle section where a powerful rock-over is required. There is a lower-off just below the final bulge. © Rockfax

FA. Chris Plant 1989. Named after Ben Moon's comment on routes which require footwork.

βeta: Quite a conditions dependent route for the tricky second move; go early morning for 'stickydamp' conditions or late evening for the best conditions, . Belay improved by Mark Garratt and i in April, however could do with a chain. A great first 8a.

βeta: essentially a three move route (with the rockover being the easiest move out the three). Getting your left hand on the good edge is the crux although the redpoint crux is the last slap to the good finger edge. A crimpy little number.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 25 May, 2019 Lead RP Should have done it in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, but I'm just glad it's done. Such a technical/crimpy sequence, leaving no margin for error. Perfect route for the boulderer who really REALLY likes small holds...

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 3 Sep, 2017 Lead dog Really chuffed with how I got on with this. After dropping the final moves five times in a session two years ago I've felt loathed to come back onto it, but this was a surprisingly uplifting session. This year it WILL happen!!
