βeta: HS 4b. The start is easy for climbing wall types as the holds are big and it's a bit steep. Anyone who can fit in the crack at the end is in for a very easy time.

βeta: A tough exit if you are fat, short or weak. Being a lardy weak marrow I found it hard, Good route on mostly good holds

gritstone7 8 Aug, 2018 Lead dnf Arm jammed to the spike at 10'...then what? Confronted with a massive sloping- topped block. Definitive guide says 'steep on good holds'. VS 4b low in the grade? How come no-one mentions the bit before the chimney? I never even got into it! Was I on the same route? I don't recognise the other log book comments.
