βeta: The start is worthwhile but the start moves at the top are pointless and technical and unprotected. Better to move in for the last moves from the right or use siderunners.

βeta: Don't understand the grading of this one at all... Unless you move right away from the arrete, to the back of the grassy ledge, the gear is a shocking distance away from the harder higher moves

βeta: This is lethal at VS. The move from the ledge has no gear unless you use a side runner and the move is not trivial. If you fell you would be lucky to stay on the ledge.

cragsman9000 5 Jun, 2014 Lead O/S Lots of flaky lichen on the bottom section made finding holds difficult. Lack of gear placements until late on in the second section made me feel like this deserves an HVS for boldness.
