Paul's original traverse weighed in at approximately F8c+ (although the traverse is a boulder problem, it is so long that route grades are a more logical way of gauging the difficulty) and Steve McClure says of his more direct finish: "Keeping low is the only rule and it's much harder than the original".
Steve's new section, which is added on to an already desperately hard and pumpy traverse is 17 moves long and "somewhere between V9 and V11".
