Rockfax Description
A stunning climb tackling the soaring groove and wildly-overhanging prow right of Ecstasy. The finishing sequence is a stopper. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
When Craig Smith freed the old aid route "The Bulge" he renamed it "Let Them Eat Jellybeans" because everyone was scratching around at Malham while he freed this superb line at Kilnsey. However the original name has stuck.

Did better than expected. Got to last clip but didn't have the oomph for the final pull

With different beta for the move to the good left hold low down it felt like a totally different route. Very nice and not too hard.

3rd session, 2nd try on RP. Happy to get this - thought I'd blown-out for the day after the first RP try - when I somehow managed to fall-off the final lip after clipping the lower belay bolt!

First 8a - climbed with wet holds through the initial bulge! Technical, pumpy, burly, sustained from the rest at the Bulgelette. Thanks to Dave P for encouraging me to try it !

I think this is a height thing, but feels like easy 7C+ to me. 24 moves.
