Stunning. Start at the very left end of the upper ledge. Step left onto the wall then up and back right where a tricky move leads to the break. (Stairway to Heaven and Blue Angel step right here). Continue left up the flakes to reach the bush on Central Wall - various pegs. Move up and right to climb a shallow groove and reach a pair of threads. Take a deep breath then sprint up the steepening headwall past many good wire placements if you are fit enough to place them!

Possibly the safest Trad E6 on Yorkshire Limestone but still possible to gain plenty of air miles!

I'd say its just as safe as Delivertoad but technically harder.
