Just days after Nic Sellers' super fast ascent, Llanberis climber Pete Robins has also bagged an ascent of Trauma in the Llanberis Pass.
Pete climbed with Nic last weekend, but fell from the difficult crux moves on his lead attempts. Last night Pete, belayed by 'Choo' sent the route without any falls.
The route is now considered to be E8 6c, a stunning line with spaced but reasonable protection which is very specific (peckers and blind wires).
Pete commented that he considers his effort to be F8a and not E8 as he rehearsed the route.
