30m. From the block at the left edge of the zawn, climb up the fin and pull up right into a short bottomless chimney under the roof. Struggle out right and follow the obvious groove up through the weakness in the overhangs to finish more easily straight up. A real battle, which packs a lot of effort into a few vertical metres.

Jake sent me this quote from the 2009 update of north wales rock after we did this route: "..Arachnid in Flytrap Zawn, Gogarth, which was a good E4, but is now a rather nasty E5.." I wouldn't agree with this; it's not nasty and not e5. To me the route seemed well protect, stunning and pumpy as you like 5c. Get on it.

What an awesomely intimidating line! A hidden gem for anyone that fancies a workout and knows how to jam. Totally safe, with bomber size 2/3 camalots right where they are needed. It took me about an hour to second this, stuck back-and-footing without the beans or the balls to pull back into the steepness. Brilliant!
