Topic - Trapeze Direct at Froggatt - anyone climbed it recently?

Chris Sansum - on 05 Nov 2012
I climbed this route yesterday, and found the technical move on it really hard for the grade (it took a while to figure it out)!

All of the discussions on UKC, Rockfax etc seem to suggest the climb is easy for the grade (VS 4c). I'm wondering if something has changed on the route recently? I don't recall finding a 'jug above' the thin crack like it mentions in the description (the thin crack itself didn't seem a good idea as a gear placement as the flake forming it moves a little). Or is the chockstone itself the jug?

I ended up doing it by getting my right foot really high onto the chockstone, then laybacking using the left side of the crack to rock over onto the chockstone. Felt bloody hard for VS 4c though! Maybe I was just having a bad day...
