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

Several natural limestone outcrops with some outstanding harder trad lines and a few bolted test pieces. Some of the outcrops in danger of being lost to the ivy. Single pitch routes to 30 metres.

Removed some brambles and ivy at the base of Lover's Leap today, which should make a couple of the climbs accessible again. Hopefully more cleaning to follow soon...

A really nice place to climb, spoilt by the c*nting chavs and their arsewipe dogs.

As of today the Lover's Leap is clean from Rubble Surprise to Smiling at Me and most of the routes have been climbed recently. Elephant rock is clean as well (I think the wardens may be keeping it clean, at least the path at the bottom). Butcher's cave is also clean, any beta on Nypharium Domus would be appreciated!
