[George at the Breck , 4 kb]The lower diagonal traverse line on pockets, from right to left, starting in the deep 2 finger pocket. Legend has it this traverse was used as training for the first ascent of Positron, an E5 on Gogarth. Just using the crack is a little harder, but still 6a (V4).

A good solid traverse, nice holds. Easy to miss the footholds though.

Class, glad I watched someone else do it first because that paint makes it impossible to find footholds unless you know they are there!

Popped a left tendon on this. Still not fully fixed.

would it be a retro flash ? its been about 10 years since I was last at the breck... The silver paint doesn't help the friction.
