Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

UKClimbing Team

4 pitches. The route follows the prominent edge between South and North Faces, with good exposure for the grade. Several variations are possible, and these become harder to the right, towards the corrie edge. Start from a ledge just left of the lowest rocks of the ridge and take the easiest line.

stuaart 14 Jan, 2010 AltLd O/S Totally clagged up day. Tom led P1, I led P2. A quality mixed climb if you stay on the crest of the ridge where the route seems to be quite a bit harder. Abbed off down the south peak from in situ tat and got ropes stuck against one another in a small notch near the top (rope friction by itself was preventing them from being pulled down), had to prussik up twice to free them. Lesson learned: if you're abbing down to continue onto the rest of the ridge, perhaps best not to ab direct down the steep face but off to the left down Original Route (although this is hard to find in a whiteout!).
