My first ever route at Kilnsey....and it kicked my ass! Might just have been 'first route jitters' but it felt very punchy for 6c. Nice climbing however and I'll be back for revenge.

First route at Kilnsey and first 6c. Really enjoyed this! Shoulder jam a couple of metres beneath pulling out of groove made the top section much easier. Brill. Will be back to try more stuff at Kilnsey.

To be honest i have been on this before but too long ago to remember anything, and i dont think i got past the obvious flake climbing. Either i did this wrong or its hard for the grade, small slopey crimps up-top.

One rest - shouldn't have tried it as a warm up cos its quite easy to read, just pumpy!

The best easy route at Kilnsey.
steve_biczyk - Lead rpt - 26/Jun/09 with Emma Curry, Marcus Pontin

quite steep, quite pumpy and a bit blind when you pull onto headwall. not to mention some moving blocks. wasnt going to get flash pump on this so had 3 rests but that was excessive, the real reason for the rests was probably the slightly trad / out there feel at the top: quite engaging and very good.
