UKC

Good mix of jamming and horizontal breaks. Not high in the grade.
This good route follows the wider crack to the right of Easy Contract, to a small ledge at the base of a short shallow groove. Climb this and the vertical crack above and finish direct.

βeta: The block at the top of the first crack has always been loose, but it has definitely moved out and is more mobile. Still pulled [up, not out] on it. No sign of a nest (fledged?)

βeta: Loose block in the crack at around 2/3 height. Currently safe enough to pull on but gear could fall out.
