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. More details.

This takes the independent line just left of Isla de Encanta. Start standing with a left hand undercut and right hand sidepull. Climb up and right to the big slopey ledge and from here lock to the slopey top. Uses some pretty wacky skills, with a crucial kneebar and toehook which are very far from obvious. Very Hueco-esque - without these it would be nails! The crux is cutting loose on the slopey ledge and swinging your heel up so good conditions are necessary too.

BillyRidal 22 Jun, 2016 Sent x Miless harder than vitruvian man. Kneebar/toe hook cunning took some working out and even then it felt nails. Solid 7c I thought, maybe I was doing it wrong. A very good problem nonetheless.

Tom Briggs u 22 May, 2016 Sent Great sequence, knee bar but no toe hook. Scary high right heel hook and left hand undercut slap.
