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.

Duncan Campbell 8 Aug, 2019 Lead RP Finally! Decided on Tuesday to really try and figure out the best way to do this but didn’t quite manage it. Ended up returning to my original sequence for the crux but think I had a better sequence for the start of it. 3rd go today. So good this. Felt fairly ok on the go. Felt similar in difficulty to Defcon... though I think this suits me less as there is barely a crimp on it! Mega to belay H on her first 7b too - team send!!

Duncan Campbell 21 Jul, 2019 Lead dog Thought I’d see how this felt compared to Defcon. First go up didn’t feel too bad, crux felt ok, crack above also didn’t seem too bad, especially as a lot cleaner than it has ever been when I’ve been on it. 2nd go up was tired and it felt totally different! Probably harder than Defcon imo but it’s more burly

Duncan Campbell 2 Sep, 2017 Lead dog Had a few goes - always fell at crux on the "redpoint" goes. Found the upper crack hard but made a good link on my last go from mid crux to last hard move. Find that bit tough. Great climbing and really cool to get up to the Cave!!

thebigfriendlymoose 8 Jun, 2016 Lead RP Superb route. What. A. Line. Climbed in horrible clammy conditions (hands left covered in damp yellow filth after almost every move). Barely held it together through the post-crux awkwardness... udged to the belay just before the thunderstorm came. Felt stern for the grade but I suspect an old-skool trad-skills enduro monster would find it far less taxing.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 19 Jul, 2015 Lead RP Great to have got this done. That crux is HARD! In addition to that, whilst the climbing above is easier it's certainly not easy - definitely fluffable when tired.
