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.

Approach notes

Walk along the public right of way by the farm and do not take the short cut past the ULGMC Hut.

Added 7 routes, mainly finger cracks, on Jon's traverse wall above the main area. All well travelled but not documented here. Makes a very pleasant lower grade area, friendly height and flat (squidgy) landing - mat useful for dry feet and minimising vegetation damage.
