UKC

15m. Brilliant route right of Heavens Above, all on natural placements. Climb the obvious cracks until a strenuous hard last few moves with bad feet. The grade is more like Scottish VIII/VII.

***Loose and missing blocks, grade may have increased and belayers beware - see climb feedback***

βeta: Apparently now M8 ish as some blocks are missing. A long reach was handy

βeta: The big block to the left of the 4th bolt has moved a bit. The crack on it's RHS has widened and the hooks/torques have changed. The small block below is still loose and rattly, and the triangular block up to the left at the base of the LH crack is loose and moves easily. This middle section is unstable - be careful, big loose blocks here.

βeta: now with the missing block it feels more like M8+ really. The route was always going to be loose and some more blocks will come off before it settles, but as long as the belayer is aware it still should be safe as the bolts are quite far right on the good rock

βeta: A substantial block came off between the 4th and 5th bolts, beneath the LH leaning crack on the 4 January. I was standing on it at the time. Makes the step up into the crack a bit more awkward.
