Covid-19

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Not really much more than a walk if you take the easiest route on the ridge.

rentaghost 6 May, 2017 Solo Very remote but Grade 1 by easiest variation, harder scrambling options (grade 2-3) to the left. Superb grippy granite blocks. Balance up the 'garden wall' feature good fun.
