UKC

75m, 2 pitches. A brilliant route, the original and easiest way up this impressive face. Quite cruxy, hard E4 or bottom end E5 - if you want a more rounded E5 experience, do the direct start.

Arnis Strapcans 1979.

βeta: The peg below the roof is gone. The available gear below isn\'t amazing and the rock a bit iffy. None the less it all held well for Alan taking some air miles in figuring out some funky beta to beat the reach to the mailbox.
