I thought several of the 5.8+ sections were pretty tough for "5.8". The traverse on pitch 5 was casual and there are pins to protect it and gear before the roof. Rained and horrible on the final pitch made it semi-epic. A great day out though!
Another great outing with Lynette...the chockstone on pitch 9 is a lot of fun....the traverse on pitch 5 is not....but after doing Forbidden Corner, no complaints about non protected traverses on Direttissima
