A low level right to left traverse starting up Black Wall

It is a scrappy bit of rock but well worth a visit if nearby. I ended up really enjoying the traverse over two sessions. I got it eventually. Pumpy but also needs some finesse. The ctag is in a superb position.

Pumpy pumpy pumpy! 5 mins 42 seconds. Right to left. Now there is no excuse not to train and do laps on this. This is what Popeye must have done to get massive forearms

Keeping to a low line not using obvious ledges. Techical crux at the niche (keeping feet off the ledges but never going high), gets real pumpy after that on good holds. Gonna send it just to piss off Zimpara because I'm being competitive :) ...

Good traverse, harder than it looks. Worked all the sections but didn't have time to link it up today.

Did it left to right (but probably not the actual route as described 2010 Symonds Yat Guide). I also used a foot hold that I'd like to replace (it's part of the rock that turns into a ledge and it feels a bit off route/not clean). Feel happy that I was able to do this on my first visit to Castle Rock this year - wasnt able to do it last year. Reckon I'm paying more attention to my foot placements and I also seem to have more finger strengh (I can just hang onto to smaller holds for longer) :-)

Got very pumped near the end.

I don't normally go for these traversey-things - too much like a climbing wall which I don't subscribe to, but I felt obliged for somereason
