βeta: my missus pointed me up this as an easy looking route, I didn't have any gear that fitted apart from a sling round a chock stone at roughly half height, horrible off-width left me bleeding and knackered. Moral is don't listen to the missus!

What an awkward pumpy climb...sort of fun in a way once it was finished but I was soooooo thrashed when I finished, had to really work for this one. Definitely not a warm up route!!! I found it more testing than Right Unconquerable!!
