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

Fontainebleau meets the Roaches! A lovely woodland circuit of mostly lower grade problems on perfect skyline grit and with good landings. Or some problems for those who have done everything on the Skyline (coughs). 

The problems are on two large boulders, the Cloud of Unknowing boulder and the Arabesque boulder. 


Approach notes

The boulders are situated in the woodland below the Very Far Skyline buttresses, almost at the bottom wall. Best accessed from the skyline. Seek and ye shall find.

The Penguin Egg boulder can be found in the woods right below the blunt nose (a good V1) beneath Willow Farm.
