The full-height, right-to-left-trending overlap gives a superb pitch. Follow the line all the way to a lower-off/abseil station at its end. The hardest section is midway passing the overhang and moving left - peg - to the base of the upper half of the line.

'ard. got through the "crux" bulge to the big holds ok, then fell off the traverse left due to a biiiig pump. COuldnt Livesy have chipped a foothold there?! Peg at traverse in good nick. 1st peg at top of initial corner is f****d, but easily backed up by good small wire. Beware loose rock n intiial corner, i pulled off a biiiig block that looked solid!

awesome line,the best trad route at kilnsey? clean enough, get on it
