Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Needs some snow build up higher up the route or it can be very dry.

Yourlead 10 Apr, 2013 2nd Graham lead firs 4 pitches then moved together to the summit. Fantastic ice for P1 & P2, P3 starting to get lean and mixed and P4 dry, but great. Fantastic climb and not another soul on the hill. Light snow all day with localised soft slab deposits building up - steady!

JasonK 22 Feb, 2013 Lead First 3 pitches of ice were fantastic in the sunshine. Unfortunately it ended abruptly and was completely dry! Ended up scrambling up to the right for a couple of pitches before regaining the snow and slogging to the top.
