/ Kilnsey main overhang
I'm minded to indulge my friends ticking tendency. Can i belay the aid pitch from the floor with a 60m or is an uncomfortable stance mandatory.
Is the really nice corner below dry?
I'm sure there's some story about Big Ron doing this rout on a rope which is too short....
I did the route in the rain when the first pitch was dry, seconding the second pitch is the mistake, as the faff at the lower off (over the lip) meant the water funnelled down the groove, down the rope and onto me, dry until that point.
You can reach the lip belay with a 60m rope from the ground.
The 1st pitch is wet as of yesterday.
> You can reach the lip belay with a 60m rope from the ground.
Correct, but i'm pretty sure you need a 70m rope to lower off from there!
ps, you shouldn't need any slings/krabs for the roof section. It's still sporting quickdraws from last years sport clkimbing efforts.
I don't recall the belay under the roof as being uncomfortable........
Correct. If you want to lower off from the lip then you need a 70m rope.
The belay at the end of pitch 1 is comfortable.
The belay on the lip is fine if a little lacking on ledges to stand on!
