[The Diedre E2 5b at Kilnsey, 3 kb]2 pitches. The large open corner gives the best mid grade trad route on the crag. Sadly it isn't often dry. 1) 5a Follow the corner to a bulge. Move onto the right wall and climb up before stepping back into the corner and a ledge on the left. 2) 5b Climb above the belay to a bulge. Pull around this awkwardly to gain a rest (thread). Move left and climb up to a tree. Traverse back into the corner and follow it to the top. Abseil off. © ROCKFAX

P1. Seeping in places but dry enough. A great line, regardless of the vegetation.

Fantastic route! Led second pitch. Made climbing through the bulge harder than it should have been. Final traverse excellent.

Class trad line. Led both pitches as one. The first half was a breeze but still great climbing, second half was more taxing. Still far easier than anything else at this god-forsaken crag though! ;)
Cragrat Rich - Lead O/S - 14/Jun/11

Tremendous outing this in an old fashioned sort of way - you get to climb a tree half way through the top pitch too! I recommend topping out rather than abbing off for the full experience.
