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.

ladempsey 1 Jan AltLd Did Ruby Groove start. Not sure what the fuss is about this one - doesn’t deserve 3 stars. P2 is a choss-fest, especially if you like big loose blocks and hollow flakes waiting to come off. Guide says it’s a layback, but very easy to not climb it that way. Walk off is a bit of pain. Would not want to do it in the dark, as the bit above the slabs is not obvious.
