Topic - Back Wall Traverse - Hobson Moor Quarry - at even lower level

Joughton on 01 Jul 2014

I was climbing at Hobby yesterday and was getting a bit bored of lapping the usual Back Wall traverse when I noticed there is a lower break line which starts about two thirds the way along.

After playing around on it for a while I realised you could link in the first third of the normal traverse coming in from the right (it climbs better that way), and then drop down into the lower break (the break your feet are in when you do the normal traverse) and do the rest of the traverse at the lower level.

I was wondering if anyone knows if this has been done before, and if so at what kind of grade? It feels pretty hard - either very bunched up with high feet, or heel-toe cams above the head which are never fun with broken glass on the floor.

Cheers, Jake
