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.

ripper 17 Mar, 2019 Lead In one, dodging between rain showers - was trying to get up and off before the rock got seriously wet so didn't waste too much time looking for placements, got one smallish nut in above the crux peg but it lifted out and rattled off down the rope as soon as I moved above.

beardy mike 8 Aug, 2009 Lead O/S The crux has a very dodgy looking peg and nothing else, as well as some tough climbing. Once past the peg, the corner looks like it's being held there by the grace of god with some help from the angels and saints... climb CAREFULLY

Strange little creature 1 Apr, 2007 AltLd 2nd pitch although has adequate protection. This thins out after the sapling and being my first V.S lead gave me 25 foot of mind games before belaying from the two pegs in the bay (rusty but solid) as there is nothing else to belay from. The last pitch is a 5a negotiation of a bulge/overhang with a peg on the left to protect the move. Without the pegs the grade would be a lot harder and there is fantastic friction on the top of the 3rd pitch.
