UKC

24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Worthwhile, though the second pitch is a bit of a let-down.
1) 4c. Climb the tough cracks, the left-hand one is tricky, the right-hand crack only gives painful finger-jamming at E1 5c.
2) 4b. Finish up the awkward groove to a loose exit. © Rockfax

βeta: More of a fight than expected. The midday sun didn't help. Although borderline stalking the wideboyz has paid off. Employing some unessasary off widthing techniques, to place far too much gear.

βeta: Onsite pitch 1, second pitch looked a bit easy so did the E1 5b finish of embankment 3 instead but dogged it.

βeta: Cider nut, i agree. Not a great warm up if you are no totally au fait with finger-locking and torqueing your feet (as i am not). Did exactly the same as you before deciding to warm up on somethin else. Obviously it started raining before i got to lead anything...!

βeta: Attempting this as a warm up route (by someone leading around VS) is a great way to pump out for the whole day. I climbed to the niche and downclimbed three times, running out of puff on each one (I was laybacking it though, maybe that's a mistake). Will have to come back another time!

βeta: A big boot on your left foot may be found useful, but may also get stuck and leave you free hanging off a finger lock in the right hand crack when you try to heave it out.
