UKH

Rockfax Description
Another unique route that begins and ends on the ground below the crag. It follows a line of weakness below an arching roof line. Start by scrambling up to a grassy ledge level with, and left of, the start of the route and traverse across to belay at the start of the break-line.
1) 5a, 22m. Move up and right to gain the break-line below the roof and traverse rightwards along this on good holds to the arete. Arrange good gear here and make the crux pull round the arete and across the short steep wall to belay in the corner.
2) 4c, 32m. Follow the break-line right across the wall, heading slightly up, before making the long descent to the far end of the crag. Care is needed with some rock and remember to protect the second who will feel like they are leading this pitch. © Rockfax

βeta: I lead first pitch which is a jug fest all the way, even the crux has good holds. Make sure the second on the final pitch is competent at leading 4c and places lots of gear. Great fun route
