Aqua mole may have a 60m pitch but as its a series of short drops where it would not be possible to fall from the top and hit the floor (I am not trying that!) I don't think that should count.

The drop test is an interesting idea, but I suspect that you would have to totally re-evaluate the list. Thus, for example, the ledges on Poseiden and Rat Hole may well arrest a falling caver.

Someone may have picked up on this already (I've not read all replies in detail; bit busy) but not all the examples you mention in the original post are in Yorkshire. If you're trying to get a proper list together, it might be worth clarifying whether you mean "just Yorkshire" or in the "Yorkshire Dales" (which is comprised of Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire).

I'm not vying for any "pedant of the year award" here - just perhaps saving respondents' time.
