14m. A popular eliminate that is a bit of a soft touch, but varied and superb. Climb a thin crack to the end of the initial crack on Z Climb, then continue rightwards into Central Climb. Follow this until it is possible to pull on to the wall on the right where a shallow flake/groove leads to great finishing holds.

Pleasant but not really top 50 maeterial - The Peak lot will laugh at us!

definitely not top 50. A few variants on a VS, strung together.

Sorry to disagree boys. Although it is an eliminate, and therefore escapable, it is in my opinion still the best E1 on Yorkshire Grit. Name me a better one?
Dave Musgrove - 17/Sep/07

this is good but not the best. i thought it was not soft touch but maybee i'm weak.

Better ones...

North West Girdle
Frensis Direct
Thin Red Line
Pillar Front
that E2 at Simon's Seat that's actually E1
that HVS at Simon's Seat that's actually E1
Monument Crack
The Waster
Noonday Ridge

...subject to some debate but most at least equal ZCE. Still, it is a very good route, poky at the start and easier and fun at the finish.
