UKH

straightforward scrambling, variable at will until the ridge narrows to a rock tower barring passage to the summit. Passing this briefly reaches grade 3 and is quite exposed. It also has to be reversed on descent.

βeta: The moves into the groove at the final tower are worth Mod, but not exposed, and (oddly) easier in descent.
