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. Read more

Start as for LKH but from the second seam, slap out to the sloping left arete, then walk feet up the ramp and press out RH crimp to gain the letterbox with LH.

Owen Diba 22 Mar Sent dnf Linked from the the first move in to the finish. For the life of me I could not do that first move. Could get the height but too uncontrolled to latch it.

willoates 17 Mar, 2016 Sent x Quality piece of rock with great moves! Looks quite Switzerland style. Worked out the moves with some beta and did it 3rd go from the ground... Well happy to do it, but felt a little bit empty because I had expected more of a battle. Fastest 7c so far.
