Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

105m, 3 pitches. Pitch 1 VI 7 35m
Start 10m up and right of Neanderthal. Climb a corner for 20m to below a steep wall with an obvious crack. Initially climb the crack then move up and left to belay on a large ledge.

Pitch 2 V 15m
From the left of the ledge climb steep turff then traverse left to the Neanderthal’s second belay.

Pitch 3 VIII 7 40m
From the belay climb directly up the corner to a ledge. Climb thin ice in the corner (peg on right) to an icicle. Follow a chimney to below a roof and turn this on the right.

Jamie Skelton 18 Feb AltLd Requires some ice and is pretty condition dependant, might be easier with more and might not go without it. Tricky to grade.
