At the momment at beacon scar there is a lot of green on the the sandstone. The start of the vespers near The Boss, mud makes the base of the climb a little tricky. Two belay resin ancors at the top makes it good for belaying a second after leading. It is mainly crack climbing all the way up, and the crack is smooth with paralell sides meaning that a good range of cams and hexs are required. Nuts can be used but the cracks that taper require 1,2,3,4 + micro nuts meaing that a zipper is likely.

Led/seconded a few of the diff cracks on this slab. Not sure which. Large amounts of unstable soil and rock at the top of this slab in 2004. Natasha tried to kill us all by dislodging a boulder from the top of the crag.
