30m. Top-class wall climbing up the light-coloured right-hand side of the wall which is sustained and well protected. Fingery moves up the wall above the trees (bolt) gain breaks and a long narrow vegetated ledge. Make a technical move past a bolt to more horizontal breaks and go up slightly right to a flake. Move left and up, past another bolt, to a peg. Step up and rightwards to the arete and then gain the top up its left-hand side. Finishing directly up the wall from the final peg is E6 6b.
All bolt and peg runners replaced with 12mm stainless. Bolt belay added just below top of wall.
Now a good, and occasionally slightly runout, 6c/6c+
A really great route, much more sustained than most at Llanymynech so wouldn't argue with 6c+
Was vaguely on my wish-list as a semi-trad route.
great that you have addressed this wall appropriately gary. nice one
Great Fr6c+ now fully geared up. Much better this way than a mix and matcher.
Brilliant wall climbing, thought 7a would be a more reasonable grade especially if you are vertically challenged. Felt about the same grade as Unbroken which is the new route to the left (also worth 3 stars)
What a great route - I'd been psyching myself up to do it in its previous incarnation and finally decided to have a go last week, only to find the nice shiney bolts:-) However I agree it felt like goood 7a, certainly harder than Jack the Smuggler. Does the suggested 6c+ take the direct finish (previously E6 6b) or head off to the arete at the top as the original "This won't hurt"?
The route heads right to the arete at this grade
I thought Unbroken was harder but fair at 7a, and utterly brilliant! The lower off is a mental challenge though.
There is a newley bolted line to the right of This Won't Hurt which is about 6c with a tricky start. The route is quite good but still needs a bit of cleaning.
Three star route.Reachy and sustained 7a.
climbed T.W.H. yesterday with the direct finish. As for T.S.S. i feel a brilliant climb and experience has been ruined by bolting it.
