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

This route is getting very bold. The peg protecting the layback / bridge / crux thing (probably 5C) is unlikely to hold a fall and is usually backed up by a good small wire. The next bit of gear is a peg quite a way down (diagonally).

Dale ?Sep, 2015 Lead Unfortunately only got to lead the first pitch. Which Is really good. The reason for this is that Johny could not second this pitch. I had to abb down to get the gear back. I thought for the first pitch hard top end E1, Johny thought 5c I recon hard 5b. We then did Valaries rib to get the gear back. Johny didn't fancy the top crux pitch. I recon this makes a 2 star E1. Will be back for the top pitch it looks good

Misha 20 Jul, 2014 AltLd O/S Great top pitch, varied, technical and massively exposed! The crux section above the 'out there' ledge (not really a ledge by the way) proved to be easier than it looked - fortunately so as it looked nails! Still quite hard though. Ed led the first pitch and did it clean once he committed to the sketchy traverse right under the rood.

31770 1 Oct, 2013 Lead dog Did the first pitch of "The Grasper" then the last pitch of this route. The peg before the overlap/groove is no longer as I took a fall onto it from the layback move (too long trying to put in a cam rather then just committing to the move). I had in a small nut above and two more below it (rp's) the last of these held. Fall approx 7 meters into space. It felt very bold hence the faffing/falling. Got straight back on and did it with a better top wire that I believe would have held but didn't test this.
