Not defunct, dangerous or crap in any way. Great, well protected climbing from start to finish. A Gogarth classic!

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!
