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.

John Workman 12 Feb, 2011 AltLd No bad nick. Guide book description misleading on last pitch? It says climb a fault and chimney above the belay as the last pitch 50m. There is a fault which has an old insitu wire low down. This fault and the chimney above looked grade 6 to me. We moved 4 metres right and climbed a fault and chimney, not visible from the belay, at grade 5.
