[Traction Trauma, 2 kb]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

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.
