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
Reasonably-protected wall climbing linking some subtle features on the face right of Inkerman Groove. Start as for Machete Wall.
Follow Machete Wall until below the short white corner. Move up left to a ring peg and then up to a horizontal break. Take the shallow, left-trending groove, peg, to another peg at its end and make difficult moves left onto the edge of Inkerman Groove at an ivy patch. Move right, thread, and up to meet the top of a thin crack-line on the right, thread. Easier climbing gains the finish of Inkerman Groove. © Rockfax

ferdia 4 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S a shame about all the threads and bolts (5 currently) when there is tonnes of other gear available. turns an otherwise excellent E4 into a semi-clip up. good climbing. a little silly moving back right at the top when you are basically in Inkerman Groove.

Duncan Campbell 26 Jun, 2014 Lead O/S Mega. I TR-ed Black Death when I first started climbing and so was always saving this. Brilliant technical climbing that is for the most part well protected. All the Cassin rings are brand new, threads in good nick, plus you get some sinker small wires. One peg in the groove is poor but it is not crucial.
