Not sure where this traverse people are talking about. Felt very hard indeed, nearly came off once. Good jams, though the crack is very dirty, especially at the top. Could have done with some bigger cams.

Very short, Danger J faffed then I pointed out to climb the left of the two cracks instead of the right

This was just too steep and too hard for me. Wimped out when the jams just got dirty at the top. Good route for the strong and confident.
