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.

Rockfax Description
The shothole line at the right-hand side of the wall. Climb to the break and sidestep the bulge by stepping onto the huge, seemingly-detached flake. The name commemorates a great line from one of the old Portland quarrymen. © Rockfax

dereke12000 23 Aug, 2014 Lead dnf Thought (wrongly) it was missing a lower off (Rockfax shows 4 separate lower offs, only 3 to be seen) but need to move right then traverse left to finish
