Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack is straightforward and solid, apart from the exit. It gets a star for being the best HS in the quarry, either that or the route name - you choose. © Rockfax

FA. Johnny Woodward, Andrew Woodward 1976.

βeta: Andrew, Its called that to take the piss (in a friedly way) out of Johnny who did those two easy routes and went on to put up Beau Geste, one of the best and hardest routes on grit at the time. Hence Beau Jest. It is erroneously credited to Johhny in Northern Limestonre, not so, its my route, it never even appeared in the '87 guide so how can they have done it in 1986.

βeta: Why is the short right arete called Beau Jest (HVS 5a) not on the site? It's in the book and deserves 1 star for being a good if escapable route.
