Once a F7a (E4 6b old money) sport climb, the bolts have been removed and it has now been reclimbed as a trad route. The route remains the same technically, but adds an extra two E-points. Shorn Cliff's hardest route.

r.e. the above comment - the 20 foot runout above a sideways micro wire felt very like trad to me! I assumed traversing onto Lundy Calling and clipping the thread was not on.

Crux about halfway up felt like murder. Would have been a gibbering wreck on lead, but not sure how this qualifies as trad since there is plentiful insitu gear.
