βeta: Ridiculously hard without the arete or boulder to the right. Having warmed up flashing Sleepwalker then Daydreamer, I couldn't come close to this despite dozens of efforts in good conditions. If this is English 6a, Satin is English 5b.

Ian Broome 1 Apr, 2011 Solo rpt Found this really tricky has a pebble been lost? Or i've lost some gritstone knack! v.good conditions, but the step up a move or so after the start felt really hard.
