Croesor new route(s)

On recent CRTT visits I've seen the new bolts on the Croesor incline. Is there somewhere I can read up about these, including details on rigging, rope lengths, route descriptions, surveys, etc? I've used the search but nothing obvious popped up under "Croesor".

Many thanks

Ermm no, I think because it is the alternative the point is a bit of exploration ;) knowing too much would spoil the adventure

try it and see ;) (NB "adult" disclaimer applies there)

More helpful perhaps this YouTube video shows someone starting it and then bailing back to the original CRTT, so you can see the start and if it's for you?

“Let me tell you how deep it is” kicks a stone down the first pitch “that deep”.

I would love to go on a trip with this guy. That dry humour!

A rather questionable bit of rigging . So my advice to anybody just look ahead abit on a few sections as there is a few rub points and poorly placed hangers.
Although this adds to the fun right ?!

I have tried to tidy it up as best as possible. I would say it was more an explore like said previously than 'a new route'

Still, worth a go !!!

Thanks. Any idea what ropes I'll need? Cheers
