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.

UKClimbing Team

Guidebook descriptions often say climb to the left of the prominent overhang for the 50m pitch 3. It actually goes Right of the overhang, continuing up the obvious diedre that heads straight up the buttress. The crux is on that pitch and is some thin moves off a ledge to gain a small niche below the overhang.

Matt Harle 4 Feb, 2018 Lead dnf P1 & 2 only - strung together to maximise the struggle. Glad I managed to dig out some tat at the belay for P3 as I'd run out of gear. Rapped off because it was getting late and P3 looked PTSD inducing. Quality line.

murray 3 Feb, 2018 AltLd O/S Yeah babyyyyyyy! Had one of those days when everything feels easy, probably my best winter route so far. Led 1&3. Mad props to adam for smashing the alt lead on his 7th ever winter route! Hard to nail down a particular physical crux, but the super thin step off the second belay with no gear requires a bit of thought. On the third pitch I stopped at a natural belay on the LHS after ~35m with two pitons + good wires, rather than the 50m pitch described in the guidebook. From there it's 55m to the top, with the first 10m being V,6 and the rest easy.
