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
A stunning climb, one of The Lakes' best single-pitch crack climbs. Move up steep ground to undercut flakes. Traverse right and gain a crack above that leads back left to the main crack-line. Take on the crack, passing a number of overlaps. © Rockfax

Tom Redwood 7 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S The best E1 I've done yet! All three of us thought it was definitely 5b at at least 3 places, easier in-between with loads of gear. The more confident you are the more it will reward, you're never more than a couple of metres from a jug. Special right from bottom to top.
