El Corridor de la Muerte!

That's right folks, the traverse corridor is now complete!

There's still more stuff to go on, but the fresh new paintjob is done, and new holds, volumes and some challenging features only traverses are up.

The Features only traverse on the left hand side has been significiantly improved, but the main action is on the right hand side, where you will find a pockets traverse (around font 6b+) and an edges traverse (at font 6c+), with endless eliminate possibilities.

The far end of the corridor is going to be set with younger climbers in mind, so watch this space over the next couple of weeks as more traverses are added!
