Covid-19

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

Takes the wall and shallow groove 5m right of the prominant overhanging crackline of Fossil.
The start is very fingery and powerful whilst the upper groove eases, but is still tough and sequency. Luckily there is a good shakeout at half height.

Charlie Low 5 Jul Lead RP 3rd session today, had one warm up and then went for the lead...managed the move up to the slot and it all flowed so well from there - first 7c!!! Very powerful crux at 1st clip, then techy and a little awkward to the top on small holds, with a good flatty rest in the middle.
