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.

Climb the vertical crack line right of the wet sods. Sustained and well protected.

fuzzysheep01 25 Apr, 2019 Lead O/S Thought this was very good, and not as much of a soft touch as I expected from comments. Tricky moves over steepening, with some 5b moves getting up to there as well. Excellent long pitch, on very sandstone-like gneiss.
