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
The impressive corner on the right-hand side of the headwall is a pumpy exercise with good protection. Start up just left of the corner and as the corner rears up, make hard moves up it to gain the final groove. Finish up the groove. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The main corner, a great line and trickier than it looks. Climb left of the corner on lovely holds until it steepens up, then determined moves with thin footholds gains the upper groove and a still tricky finish. Top pitch only, accessed by abseil.

sparkass 4 Oct, 2015 Lead O/S Climbed all three pitches. Excellent adventurous climbing and well worth the effort. The first pitch requires a steady and cautious approach but is pretty easy and well fairly well protected. The second pitch is weirdly reminiscent of Gogarth being covered in a blanket of lichen but, like Gogarth seems to provide just adequate holds and protection to give a really good pitch. The third pitch has good corner moves with solid rock and gear. Should see more ascents as a complete route!
