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.

βeta: Be very careful at that 3 meter point as the now crux does not have any gear and would be a ground fall - possibly now VS 4a!?

βeta: Climbed this today and managed to pull a large and seemingly strong looking part of the arete off about 2.5-3m up (pretty much where your first runner goes), resulting in a rock fall, me fall and my belayer almost having her head taken off. Climbs probably gone up a few grades now...sorry.

SuperLee1985 23 Jun, 2019 Lead O/S Felt pretty tough for a severe. Much steeper than it looks and although the holds are good, hanging around to place gear wasn't really an option for me so I ended up being pretty run out (ground fall territory.

bpmclimb 21 Jan, 2009 Lead rpt Easy but not necessarily advisable to run it out until the angle relents. If you want to protect the lower wall you have to hang on jugs on slightly overhanging rock while placing fiddly larger cams/hexes. Possibly HS, but anyway top end Severe.

Dax 7 Jun, 2007 2nd Actually was better seconding this route becuase it meant I could concentrate on climbing as direct up the erete as possible rather than messing around placing gear in the left corner.
