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.

The most common way of starting the Free Route. From DBB, head left (often wet) and then up shallow corner. Step left to undercuts, then move back right and make hard moves up the face on small holds (crux). Finish more easily to belay on large ledge. About 5/6 bolts but a fair few pieces of trad gear required.

Duncan Campbell 5 Feb, 2018 Lead O/S Got a soaking from a big wave swinging across to the belay and got super flash pumped on this. Such good climbing and a good test of my abilities as a Climber as I was in charge of doing everything. A great day with Kate as ever!

spidermonkey09 21 Feb, 2017 Lead dog Soaking wet in high swell! Absolutely epic but fair to say conditions weren't ideal! Somehow fluked it on gopping rock to the undercut rest. Thought I might do it but a particularly massive wave soaked me as I shook out! Regardless, can't work that crux move out- feels bloody hard to me. Carried on to the ledge with one sit to do P2.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 31 Dec, 2016 Lead Great pitch, with a short/sharp crux. As with P2 of the Free Route, all the hard sections are bolted, with gear (cams/wires) coming on the easier ground.
