Above and Beyond the Kinaesthetic Barrier** E4 6b

Rockfax Description
A highly technical route up the arete. Use ancient bullet-marks to reach the first jugs then make some balancy moves to the top. The crux is the start but the top is scary and a mat is of limited use. Very-highball f7A. A direct start is f7A+. © ROCKFAX

Done on the same day as Nosferatu and Pebble Mill, this was by far the hardest (and probably scariest too)!

Initially read it wrong and tried to do the top arete on the rhs. Got it first go once committed to the sequence on lhs. Superb problem

I used to ride out on my bike to burbage south every other day and brick myself on pebble mill, above and beyond and the knock. I jumped and fell off these routes until I did 'em. No mats or spotters, I bruised my heel so bad that I could'nt climb for a month. I remember shouting so much after I did it, I scared some walkers.
