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.
This is 8b according to Steve McClure who flashed the 3rd ascent - so please regrade accordingly. Why was it ever given 8b+ in the first place by people who have never even been on it????
I'd just like to point out that when we freed the first pitch in 1975 young Ron thought that the roof pitch would go free too!!
If this route were to start from the ground and was always dry and clean then it would only be 8a.
How come its got 11 votes for 8b and its only had three ascents?? Cheesy!
Also - it still makes at thrilling aid route, all on fixed gear, when the weather is crap.
