30m. From the block at the left edge of the zawn, climb up the fin and pull up right into a short bottomless chimney under the roof. Struggle out right and follow the obvious groove up through the weakness in the overhangs to finish more easily straight up. A real battle, which packs a lot of effort into a few vertical metres.

Well good! Really unusual style of climbing; strenuous and full body pump but always felt secure, just had to keep on inching upwards.

Loved this. Really cool move up to reach the overhanging crack/chimney and then a quality thrutch fest with gear by you the whole way. I thought it just about warranted the E5 , despite being pretty safe. it just felt like a sustained outing and slightly bigger lead than you'd expect at e4. Great pitch.

Not defunct, dangerous or crap in any way. Great, well protected climbing from start to finish. A Gogarth classic!

What an awesomely intimidating line! A hidden gem for anyone that fancies a workout and knows how to jam. Totally safe, with bomber size 2/3 camalots right where they are needed. It took me about an hour to second this, stuck back-and-footing without the beans or the balls to pull back into the steepness. Brilliant!

Jake sent me this quote from the 2009 update of north wales rock after we did this route: "..Arachnid in Flytrap Zawn, Gogarth, which was a good E4, but is now a rather nasty E5.." I wouldn't agree with this; it's not nasty and not e5. To me the route seemed well protect, stunning and pumpy as you like 5c. Get on it.
