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.

gforce 17 May, 2012 Lead Fell at the start of Belldance and started again from CTD. Had a bit of a wobbler right at the top when a big triangular block rocked quite significantly as I pulled past it - not sure if it could be trundled?
