Western Grit's tough answer to The Peapod; a classic struggle but a classic nonetheless. The narrow central section is an uphill battle especially for those who are large in the chest or short in the arm! The final section gives glorious jamming.

Particularly suitable for anorexic mutants with midget legs and two left arms (HS 4b in that case). The jams are glorious.

E2 if you're wearing shorts! I thought this was harder than Freddy's Finale.

LOL at PatEase on shorts, me mate tried to 2nd it with shorts and came down ripped to bits. :)

Agree totally with Fiend, being of this planet and species I couldn't even get ten feet up the route!!! I've led Peapod and didn't find it as hard as the Trident...Bizarre, bizarre starting moves...Next time I attempt to climb The Trident it will be after downing ten pints of Guinness and whilst wearing a sumo suit!!!

Significantly harder than Peapod!
