Back Wall Traverse (6a) *** at Hobson Moor Quarry

Back Wall Traverse (6a) *** at Hobson Moor Quarry

Back wall traverse hobson moor 14Hello!  I’ve just realised that Winter is really on the way and trad routes are going to be out of the window quite soon, due to cold, wet and long nights.  I want a challenge to take me through the winter, so I’ve set myself the challenge of working on the Back Wall Traverse at Hobson Moor Quarry just outside Manchester.

The Traverse is a classic.  Given three stars and graded at V4 6a, it is significantly harder for the short.  It is classically completed right to left, but you can go at it any way you like – there aren’t rules!

My aim is to complete this traverse right to left by March 2014.

Want to join me?

Leave a message below and we can arrange some meet-ups.   Look forward to getting this beauty ticked off.
