At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving.

Rockfax Description
Follow Looning the Tube to the bolt and then head straight up the slab following the line of weakness, past a good skyhook below half-height. Maintain you composure to eventually reach a bolt just before you top out. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An evil route for when life is getting you down. A single skyhook protects this lonely lead

jacob shieldhouse hadley 31 Jul, 2015 TR O/S worth two stars, quite a few decent skyhooks after half height, the 1st bolt might protect you up to the first hook if you belayer jumped of the ledge!

BenRyle 12 Nov, 2013 Lead RP Gave this one a practise on TR prior to lead. Inadvertently made a pretty poor peenut placement when a foothold broke near the crux. Also a little mossy but nothing to worry about..
