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.

An excellent wall climb. There are two variations. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
One of the best 7c's in the Peak with a very fingery start to a sustained upper wall. It has become significantly harder since the FA due to hold loss.

w.pettet-smith 18 Aug, 2019 Lead RP Great route- no crack on upper wall- makes for great undercut gaston flick crossover combo. 1st redpoint, a first for me at 7c. Worth the shoulder tweek, kinda.

highrepute 16 Jul, 2016 Lead dog Seems like this may have lost holds. The move, after you've moved left, reaching up from a good break seems too hard for 7c. Still do-able but route now seems to revolve around that move. Apart from this it's great climbing
