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.

UKClimbing Team

60m, 2 pitches. ***PLEASE TAKE CARE WITH LOOSE ROCK - anything dislodged from here tends to funnel toward the lower path to Ferocity wall***
Pitch 1 (5) climbs the slab to the left of St Gregory. A pleasant beginners climb in its own right.
Pitch 2 (6a) Has plenty of bolts but is rather more exciting prospect with a bit of a trad feel and some loose rock. Cross the collapsing debris behind the belay and climb up onto the arete. At its top traverse left with crux moves after the bolt which has a rope extension. Finally exit at a white wall and belay on the fence behind.
