24m. A sharp pitch. Start left of the large tree up and right of the start of Central Wall. Move left to the initial break and then left again to a left-trending flake that ends at the main break and bush of Central Wall (peg above). Move up right on to the wall and climb up a shallow groove (threads) to a gnarly finish. Lower-off.

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.
