Rockfax Description
The line through Kilnsey's Main Overhang that they said would never go free. A magnificent route along the obvious diagonal line, which is unfortunately often wet. © Rockfax

Get in. Finally managed to hold the jug at the end of the crux after falling there at every RP and managed to take it to the end. Best route in Yorkshire for line and position.

Aid climbed through the roof with etriers and daisy chains. Took the line of bolts above deja vu. some long reaches, a couple of moves on cams and dodgy old aid bolts. scary! Abbing off the lip was probably the most scary part. Old peg and bolt backed up with a wire, on old tat. Removed the wire once Nigel was down.

Delighted to get this done in less than optimal conditions. What a great route.

King Line! Should have done this weeks ago but didn't find a key hold on the lip so fell there three times unnecessarily! Probably soft 8a+ or even hard 8a, but quite difficult to work the moves on so I think worth 8a+ for this reason.

Iconic and v different from anything else in N yorkshire. 8a+ max I'd say but you can't select that on the grade voting. One hard crux, the rest is easy. Give it a go!
