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.

murray 5 Mar Lead dnf Spontaneous mid week hit with Will. I lead the first two pitches but then backed off as the crag was melting and lumps of rime were raining down around us from above. P1 was unpleasant badly protected ice, but P2 was sensational! Never climbed anything remotely as steep and sustained before. We'll be back.
