Tactical Nuke** V5 / f6C
[rob showing one of the easier moves on the traverse. , 3 kb]First traverse left of 'starboard traverse', large overhang is the most obvious feature. Start standing on a good sloping foothold and reach up to a side pull where you can adjust your body position to bring your right foot far right and low. From here undercut a poor hold and bring right hand far right to a sloping hold that you can push your palm on. Now make the crux move by bringing your right foot across to a good foothold and match it with your left, desperately bring your left hand across and grab a good side pull. Bring your right foot away from the match and continue traversing on OK slopers under the overhang and to the end of the section of rock.
Really balancy,enjoyable problem made with the lanky in mind.

Hard V4/ soft V5 took a handful of goes. A very authentic traverse that requires a little power endurance and some slick footwork to get from its start to end. The main difficulty is working out the best sequence to use but once your sure of the method the send is pretty simple.

Really pleased to have made my first 'decent' problem. Excessively chalked holds (and some blood on the crux) will hopefully leave some temporary instructions. Crux is pretty dam hard, although coming from me that doesn't really say a lot! Definitely felt it was one of the better problems at the crag.
