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.

The buttress on the north face between Lagangarbh Buttress and Great Gully Buttress. Choose any line you like on sound, grippy rock. When the rock peters out, one can descend a little into Great Gully before traversing this to reach a broad upward-trending ledge on North Buttress. (Care required on the scree and the ledge is liable to be damp and slippery.) Continue along the ledge until you fancy climbing up, giving you the last quarter of North Buttress and popping you out right at the summit. (Note: some of this latter section is damp and loose, in comparison with Broad Buttress. No significant difficulties though.) Good view of Crowberry Tower available en route.

Gavin McColl 5 Jan, 2019 Solo O/S Scrambling was very easy, not very exposed and so we tried to find the toughest ways to ascend! Was a great day, no snow on the buttress so putting it down as a summer scramble.

timparkin 24 Jun, 2018 Solo O/S My first grade 2 scramble and a wonderful day for it. Lots of ways to go up, all good solid and grippy rock (so grippy a few nodules punctured my hand!) and a final walk to the top. Didn't do the Gully/North finish.
