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. More details.

55m, 2 pitches. Start at some rust-coloured rock above the big flat boulder. Climb up directly past a poor peg (bold) to a small groove, and continue into a small niche. Either head right to the big triangular niche of Inbred to belay, or even better, move left and slightly down to another niche then more or less directly up the wall to join the final section of Inbred, giving a sustained 45m pitch.

murray 30 Mar, 2019 Lead O/S Brilliant pitch on some of the coolest rock outside of gogarth! Fairly spicy start as there are a couple of moves where you only have the peg to keep you off the deck from a decent height.

Wilberforce 30 Mar, 2019 2nd dog Sick route; lovely moves on beautiful rock. The lead is bold though! Had to rest on the rope for a couple of mins immediately prior to the traverse. Would like to come back with the fitness to second it properly or in a few years to lead it.

geoff b 26 Feb, 2019 Lead O/S Did the Direct, one pitch, version. Positive, steep, climbing but definitely bold. Other than some slings on poor spikes, there's now only one peg (& it's a downward-pointing, bent, blade!) & I didn't know about the low cam or RP, so it was quite exciting all things considered. Could have done with more small cams for the rest of the route too, but at least we were climbing in t-shirts in February!
