Grit E7 Second Ascent for Nathan LeeVideo

© Nathan Lee
As reported in the UKC Top Ascents, Nathan Lee has made what is likely the first repeat of the Ben Tetler E7 Highball That You Bastards! at Kinder Northern Edges.

The route, a virtually unprotected hanging flake/ramp, is a superb looking line and Nathan commented in the UKC Logbooks:

"Stunning route, well worth the walk."

The UKC Logbook crag description is:

The major Kinder outcrop. An impressive natural edge situated in a fine moorland setting high up on the edge of the plateau. Good quality rough rock with routes up to 20 long. A huge variety of climbs of all grades. Best visited during a hot summer, can be sandy. Look out for Misty Wall (S), anything on Legacy Buttress (HVS to E4), Exodus, Jester Cracks (both VS 4c) and The Twisted Smile (HVS 5a). For something more demanding try Candle in the Wind (E3 5c) and Natural Born Chillers (E6 6a).

Great vid and well done Nathan. Also shows that Kinder North deserves more attention as it hardly lacks stunning lines on good quality rock.

Awesome watch, well done. It always make me brick myself when people rush at the end of a hard route. He practically jumped on the top and i thought he was going to fall.
