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.

FA. C.Smith, R.Smith 1988

Keendan 22 May, 2018 Lead dog Fell of going from the big left hand jug at the end of the roof. Blast. Sequence now more refined so I think this will go next session. Slightly dissapointed with my fitness as the enduro section and the roof crux are both quite easy, but I'm fading at the top.
