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.

200m. Note: Rare alpine plants (Dwarf Cornel) grow on ledges half-way up, so please only climb when turf is truly frozen.

βeta: Did this in lean conditions - plenty of ice, no significant snow buildup. Top pitch (mixed climbing over sloping chockstone) was harder than ice pitch lower down. 4 pitches plus moving together. Nice route.

Simon Caldwell 11 Mar, 2006 - Quite thin conditions, good frozen turf, a few hard rock steps/chockstones/chimneys. Mostly soloed, carrying 2 60m ropes (as you do), used rope to lead the easy-but-scary bit avoiding the semi-attached icicle, and the rather hard chimney below the top chockstone. Fantastic day out, haven't the faintest idea what the grade was!
