UKC

30m. A brilliant route taking a parallel line to Admission, another classic addition to the Tunnel line up. Start up The Third Eye to the second bolt. Break off rightwards with increasing difficulty to a hard section on sidepulls to gain good edges in a faint niche (technical crux). More sustained climbing leads through the bulge to a decent rest. Move up, then rightwards to another difficult section. The finishing section is slightly easier. Classic. was originally given 7c+ but now reckoned to be worth 8a.

βeta: Brilliant route, one of the best I've tried in Scotland in this level of difficulty! The route went on my second try that day, with two sessions in the previous weeks to learn the Beta.
