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
Wobble up the narrow leaning groove. It is technical but sadly it is also escapable. An attractive line but a disappointing climb. © Rockfax

cdpuk 9 Aug, 2015 Lead Looks nice a nice line from below, but staying only on the crack can't be E1 5c (Rockfax). Used the occasional ledge to the right and got back on the crack to make upwards progress. Not recommended.

martroberts 22 Sep, 2012 Lead dnf I've yet to fail to onsight a 5c crack but I couldn't do this at 5b (apparently!)I got a high cam in from the ground, had quite a few goes at the start and down climbed many times. Then gave it full commitment and ended up slapping the sloping jug on the right(off route). Even slapping that sloping hold felt like 6a so I guess sticking to the route might be 6b. All felt a bit silly really

masa-alpin 10 Jun, 2012 Lead dnf The move at the lower half to reach the break was very hard without touching the arete - I felt it to be 6a/6b (for my height). I didn't fall but in the end I climbed down to the ground and gave up. I spotted a chipped scar - did it used to be a decent finger hold, possibly? Then the grade would make more sense.

Woodiee 6 Apr, 2010 Lead O/S gets E1 5c in the rockfax guide - might be a bit too protected for E1 (peg scars take small nuts/microwires) but consistant stiff 5B moves and pumpy when placing gear. easily escapable on the right tho :(
