/ Thread on Pillar Front, Eastby
I'm not sure why this was ever left in situ but I removed it today. Anyone doing the route can place their own from the ledge or use the perfectly adequate cam placement in the break beneath it.
To whoever put it there - please don't litter the crags with unnecessary fixed gear.
Is Pillar Front as lethal as it looks? I've never had the balls to get on it but it does look good.
Steady away if you can keep your head - the climbing isn't hard for 5b but it's very run out. As in the OP, the thread isn't necessary - the guide tells you all you need to know.
Cracking route - one of the better E2s I've done on Yorkshire grit.
Not that many years - i did it about 5 years ago and had a right fiddle threading a wire from below. Never had tat in it all the times i've done it.
