Heather Hayes grapples with the crux of UKD, a neg...


Inbetween Fools Game and On The Edge lies this neglected but nice route. I think UKD stands for Ultimate Killing Device because it was led before the TCU. It now protects well with small aliens at the crux. Scramble in from either side to the stance at the start of the steep tips crack. Crux comes quickly with a very strange and off-balance mantle thing. After that just follow the jams.


Between On The Edge and Fools Game.


2 each to #3 Camalot, maybe 3 each black and blue Aliens to sew up the crux.

This is a way cool route.
Unlike most things at the Forks, it's more like a Tucson climb than a Forks jamfest.

I'd forgotten all about this route...
Didn't this protect on wires just fine ?

Idunno but I was glad to have two black aliens on the crux of it today!
