Gouther Additions

Dan Varian added a couple of cool additions to Gouther Crag last year.

First up is Umbongo (7C?), which climbs the roof halfway between the start of Matt’s Roof and the start of Carlisle Slapper from sitting, veering into Matt’s Roof (or Trev’s Traverse) to finish.

On the same block he linked Umbongo into Kukri (Umbukri, 8A). This apparently adds some hard moves to get over into Kukri, so its not just a straight forward link up – its got a hint of new climbing in! Whilst not the best line it makes sense and adds another tough line to the crag (image below).
