Same as BLT R-L except you can't use the juggy hold on the Left Edge route, the hold above the great layback jug, as you turn the corner on the left end, right before the pebble crack. Also, on this one you must finish UP the pebble crack itself to the top. The basic BLT R-L just finishes low after you turn the corner. ALSO you CANNOT use the crack in the middle of the traverse to either jam, layback, or anything, hands or feet. So which of these options you do or don't do varies the grade in between the basic BLT and most restricted, from V1/V2 to V4 possibly V5

5 out of 5 stars Did full R-L Eliminate with Pebble face finish

You end up getting a hand in double tick hold (same start hold as pebble face problem) and then up. Could be V5 I guess. Can't use any of the crack, Layback or jam or anything.

5 out of 5 stars Nice

Eliminates make it much harder than use-anything traverse. Finished up the pebble crack.
