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.

UKClimbing Team

2 pitches. A splendid route, climbing the pod and crack to a peg belay. The corner in the roof past 2 pegs. The peg belay is now very poor and it is advisable to carry on and complete the climb in 1 pitch.

Hugh Simons 18 Aug, 2018 Lead G/U Climbed to the first peg, felt pumped so tried to down climb, fell off 2 m from the ground, very annoying. 2nd go I actually committed and managed to get through totally fine. None of the moves are really that hard but nothing is that obvious and gear is a bit fiddly. Great airy climbing in the upper half after the hard stuff below. Slightly annoyed to have blown the onsite but a great route nontheless.

apollo18 2 Jun, 2013 Lead dnf Close shave. After feeling totally solid, took the mother of all whippers onto the peg after my hand popped from a slightly greasy hold in the niche. Ended up missing the deck by half a metre. The 'press on to the niche and then sort out gear' strategy kinda bit me! Gave my belayer the fear and a few blisters.
