There is probably the odd one on grit as well, but they will be a lot shorter.
Seriously, for a first one Pocket Sympony isn't a bad option. Safety Net or L.Unconquerable on grit are good routes with good gear and not hard for their grade
You are seriously suggesting a solo for someones first E1 ?

It's not a solo. I soloed it and was a bit dismayed to find good little slots for small cams all over the shop.
Another shout for Sergeyenna. It's probably absolutely disgusting at the moment, but it's a superb route (and pushing E2) - in fact one of the best limestone E1s I've done.
Meditation is easier and better pro than Sergey-whatsisface
The latter felt quite hard IMO.
PLenty easier E1s than either all around the Peak tho.
Pocket Symphony and Yew Tree Wall (next to George) both easier on lime
On Beeston I found Deaf Dove (even) easier than Pocket Symphony, and yet it gets E2. Both are nice.
I thougt Sergeyenna was well hard for E1.
