Slightly eliminate but still worthwhile. Start up Zed Legs but continue direct from the base of the lower ramp to the next ramp. Follow this before you can traverse across delicately left to the lower-off.

Starts direct past a small situ thread as for Zed Legs and continues direct throgh a bulge (thread) to pull onto the steep upper slab just left of the upper ramp of ZL. Nifty footwork on small quartzy holds up to and then L along the break. A short crack on the L enables a new lower-off to be reached. A wanna-be version of Stoney's 'Dies Irae'?

(A new E3 (G. Gibson) moves left from the first small thread then up to another thread below a bulge. Pull slightly right through the bulge past a peg to stand on the steep slab (peg). Move up and left to join the finish of Y Front.

Forgot to say the new route mentioned above is well worth a star.
