UKH

Rockfax Description
One of the defining trad-lines of the country, and a milestone in every British climber's career. Follow the striking open-book corner with increasing difficulty to a tough crux right at the top. An ancient peg sits below the final hard section - it is wise to back this up! © Rockfax

βeta: Intimidating place. Felt unsure about belay place. Nut your gear to the wall where convenient. Small cam to back up the rusty peg. Didn't fall on the peg so cannot establish the condition of this. Got up there but with moments of terror. I am not a trad climber!

βeta: Watched the leader of the pair on the route before us take a considerable whip at the crux. His tiny micro-cam popped and the peg, which he had clipped, held. Though once you get up there and see the peg, you'll want to protect it with something else.

βeta: The peg can still hold a small fall - my cam in the slot (it was super wet) above popped while resting and the peg held!

βeta: Fairly nice pocket/layback snapped off in my hand from right wall about halfway up. The hold is probably down near Cromlech Boulders is someone wants to glue it back on...
