UKH

135m, 3 pitches. An excellent, clean, quick drying route. Climb the cracks on the left edge of the right slab to a steep wall, where there is a choice of cracks going left is slightly easier. Traverse the flake right past a peg and through a bulge. Climb up the slab via the path of least resistance.

John Cunningham & George Shields 1969.

βeta: P3 is technical 5a for shorties. The (short) crux is well protected, though, and so it still is VS. Watch out for the rope drag on P3.
