UKH

Rockfax Description
16m. Arguably the best VS in the quarry. Take a good supply of big stuff. Climb steeply to the first ledge then step right and climb to a spike at the start of a hand-traverse. Follow this left to gain the exit cracks. A more direct start up the steep crack just right is a strenuous 5a. © Rockfax

βeta: There is currently a group of nesting pigeons in the final crack. At least two young ones so not sure how long they'll be there for.

βeta: You need lots of BIG gear... I had a number 11 hex, a monster cam, and still didn't feel protected. True classic though, absolutely amazing route
