All Out, 8c, for Rhoslyn FrugtnietNewsflash

Rhoslyn Frugtniet has made the first female ascent of All Out (8c), at Kilnsey, in North Yorkshire.

The route was first climbed by Neil Carson in 1996, the same year he established Wales' first 9a route, The Big Bang (9a)

All Out saves a particularly challenging boulder - thought to be in the region of 7C in isolation - until the very end of the route, at which point the climber has already completed the pumpy 7c route - 50 for 5 (7c).

Rhoslyn first climbed the lower 7c route 50 for 5 - as well as its 8a+ extension 50 for 5 - The Ashes (link up) (8a+) - on the same day back in August 2021.

Sharing news on social media, Rhoslyn said:

'This felt GOOD - what a route! A pumpy 7c finishing with a marginal rest, straight into a hard 7C boulder on marginal holds'.

'For me, not just a test of endurance or finger strength, but also mental strength to keep turning up. Pleased to see progress in all of these areas compared to previous seasons'.

The route is Rhoslyn's fourth at 8c, and her first since May 2022, when she climbed Bat Route (8c) at Malham Cove.
