UKC

35m. Bold and balancy climbing up the wall right of MS. Good gear in the breaks but the bits in between require plenty of RPs and dilligence placing them. Climb the MS groove but exit rightwards into the continuation groove. Swing right out of this and mantel onto a sloping ledge. Look longingly back at the sanctuary of the groove, then move bravely up to the SB break. Swing right out of the niche, rock-over immediately and trend left of the wall to the final break and pleasant finish.
