UKC

2 pitches. First pitch of Bovin second pitch of Oxo. We followed a team as as Oxine was busy.
I'm sure this is not the first time this has been done.
Good to see UKC has 5b. I did this route a number of years ago. In my Tremadoc guide I crossed out 5a and put in 5b/c. So it was wit some trepidation that I went up to the corner again.
After moving into the corner I decided that discretion was the better part of valour.
So went right then back left and up and back onto route and into the steep corner.
Emma was able to try the corner and described it as 5a lay backing with a desperate finish.

βeta: Brambles semi-gardened today with a nutkey and brute force. Anyone with secateurs finishing the job will create a brilliant 2star linkup.

βeta: The top of the first pitch could really do with some gardening to get rid of the brambles.
