Dan McManus has repeated The Big Orange, Pete Robins' brilliant highball at Trwyn Talfarach*. Dan used a different tall-man's sequence, staying more on the right wall then falling left to the jug that marks the end of the main difficulties, suggesting a grade of 7C/+ for this version. (Pete's sequence stays more on the arete and is closer to 8A).

Irrespective of the grade it's still probably the best line in Wales...

*crag of the moment
