Up north in Yorkshire Dave Birkett thought he'd have a quick play on Mandela 8b, the huge capping roof at Kilnsey Crag first aided by Ron Mosley in 1957 and freeclimbed by Mark Leach in 1988. He nearly ended up doing it first day and finding it in his own words as "atmospheric and not like a sport climb". He got it yesterday. It has only had a handful of reported ascents.
On the North Buttress of Kilnsey Gareth Parry added a link up: Full Tilt into Urgent Action, calling it Full Action and offering a grade of 8b.
