20m. The big white wall round to the right gives a taxing pitch. Climb the crack in the left-hand rib then trend right past the overhang to a flake-crack. Move right again to a second flake above the bulges and use this to commit to the upper wall, then finish direct by more hard climbing. The direct finish is one of Yorkshire's more blatant 'last great problems'.
FA. Bob Smith 1991. Northumbrian raider strikes southwards and takes two big ground-falls into the Eavestones' mulch in the process.
