Kirkby Wall* HVS 5b
[Malham Right Wing c1977, 4 kb]27m, 2 pitches. A wandering line but with good climbing. Start at the right-hand end of the long low roof below a pillar. 1) 5b, 10m. Make a hard move up to good holds. Follow the right-hand groove to a roof. Traverse delicately left to a ledge. 2) 4c, 17m. Step up left onto a ledge and climb the flake and then move out right onto the wall. Follow the wall before stepping back into the corner near the top. There are many variations to this pitch. © ROCKFAX

RKirke - 2nd O/S - 29/Sep/14 with Alex T

Done as one big pitch which was brilliant! Traversed into the corner too early though which almost resulted in a rapid descent. Back on route and finished out left for added exposure. Awesome.
