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.

Crag features

The gritstone blocks that form the back wall of Henry Price halls of Residence at the University of Leeds have provided a training ground for the Leeds university Climbing Club for many years. Lauded as 'great training for Malham' and featuring further buttresses of the arch and the hench tree it is surely worth a visit!

University staff have told climbers not to climb on the overhangs (i.e. stairwells between walls over doors). Please respect this to keep 'crag' access open!

Approach notes

Walk round the back of Henry Price.

Dude is that it! :O Its not really a crag is it? Or is there more than on the pictures?

Don't piss on the walls and don't make noise in the evening during exam periods! Plenty of lasses around and about, entering and exiting the building. Much better than Leeds Wall and will take trad gear...
