Traction Trauma*** 7a
[Traction Trauma, 2 kb]16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. A fine test of both nerve and technique. From the second peg on Climb High move upwards on small holds to a lonely and difficult to clip bolt. Pass the bolt by thin cranking before moving leftwards to better holds and the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

First route after injury and 1,5 month no no climbing :) with placing draws on lead. Glad to get back to climbing after so loooong. Well done Nick, set your personal best on the other route, not a bad day

Second go, missed the flash as couldn't see the cheeky foot pocket needed to traverse up left. Really good techy route., prob easy 7a overall.

Tried to do it without the bolts but a bit scary on sight. Hadn't clipped the first but thats fine as there is a peg and wire right next to it, but I clipped the second and still found it scary ;-). Would like to go back and do it without the bolt now i know the moves. Good route.
