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.

Mind that hold © Betajunkie

Crag features

Steep limestone wall with with a variety of hold types holds can be quite rough. Some technical problems some powerful and a hard left to right traverse of the buttress. Plenty of linkups to go at. Problems from font 3 to 8A. The ledge is out on all problems bar one (The Pockets). Two pad stack seems fair considering the awkward height of which the sit starts are. 

Wentbridge wall consists of some steady bouldering with a tough traverse. Good for a warm up before going to the overhanging wall (Adrian Ledgeway wall).

Warning: The top hold for the problems Used for Glue and the Shield is very hollow and is in risk of being pulled off. It is a big hold be careful. It can be done static for someone of shorter height. No wild moves.

All problems for Wentbridge wall start matched in the break. This way adding more value to the problems.

Please read the access notes.

Park on the road by Wentbridge house. Walk up Jackson lane past the church then a house on you’re right where a footpath appears on you’re left. From here the crag comes into view. The large buttress has lots of easy warmups and traverses the main show is down the far left hand side. Be respectful and don’t walk through the church grounds, stick to footpaths and keep the noise to a minimum. Small groups advised.
