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.

Paul Swail on Liquid Cool, E2 5c, Lower Cove © Hillerscapes
The extensive buttresses of Lower Cove are among the steepest and best in the Mournes, better and more continuous than they appear from a distance, with excellent routes at every grade from Severe to E8. Mostly single pitch (15-45m).
Don't miss out on the entertaining cave scramble!
A relatively flat walk in along the Annalong Valley (1hr).
|This is a great crag thats got something on offer for everyone. My favourite route is the Gumbo Variation (HVS 5a,4b,4a) which I did with my crazy french/peruvian/alcoholic friend seb.
Other routes worth doing include the classic Pillar Variant and the one just to the right of it (tight squeeze for most people.)|
