What's it all about removing the trad grade for this route. It's much more highball that Spider Crack right next to it and about as safe. Lovely moves, about E1/5c in my book and at that grade, I know what I'm talking about.

Felt a bit scary at the top, especially as i did it without the right hand side crimp above the break. Makes it more interesting though.

Did the hard moves but traversed off at second break as full of green slime

Finally got it without doing the rockover from the scab - just undercut the break and walk feet up very carefully. Short person technique maybe. Top section was still rather worrying.
