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.

25m.

Rockfax Description
The prominent groove gives a fine climb, though the approach has its fair share of dodgy rock and one tricky move. The main groove is pumpy fun. It can be split at a belay at the break but this isn't essential. © Rockfax

βeta: Take care on the lower wall. It is always going to be a bit loose and the gear is far from solid. Moves pretty easy mind.

migs493 u 20 Apr, 2019 Lead O/S Harrowing first section and awesome top section. Should get E1 for the lower section alone, but only just 5b, plenty of rests once the groove has been entered. Cracking route if you can solo 4c.

MD 18 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Hard for the grade. Worrying start with little gear on friable rock. Hard but well protected high up. The first half is type 2/3 fun, the top type 1. Went past the halfway point on the rope so longer than 30m.

Droyd 3 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Seemed solid E1 but very good - worrying first 15 metres (I got one piece of gear) then steep and fun above, but creaky and surprisingly crap gear - lots of flared cracks that would probably spit out cams and not much in the way of bomber nut slots. Deserves much more traffic.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing u 9 Aug, 2015 2nd O/S Contrary to the opinions of many here I thought this was a good route, bit of loose rock down low but plenty of nice/airy climbing above to make up for it. Plus, it gets the last of the evening sun (and was Penny's first HVS lead)
