<< Daniboy < Spartacus  |  Gladiator > Harakiri >>

The extension to Spartacus has long moves on good holds. It's possible to get back to the Spartacus lower-off from the top on a 70m rope. Can also be reached from Gladiator or Harikiri.

This route has a very loose large tufa,and was the scene of a spectacular catch when i pulled off a large football sized hold.I was unable to remove the Tufa (too busy at the crag),contact Steve at Glaros bar to see if this route is now ok.

I think you will find that the aforementioned tufa has now been removed, since it came crashing down to the ground last week after a French climber pulled the whole thing off whilst on the lead. Fortunately there were only five people at the crag and nobody was sat underneath, (unlike the following day when a similar incident could well have wiped out half a dozen or more people!)

Not sure about 7a for the top bit, but agree with 7b+ for the whole thing.
