βeta: The best protected HVS 5a anywhere? Ideal for a first-timer. Big holds and plenty of rests.

Peakphil 23 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Pretty straightforward for HVS, loads of gear, loads of ledges, not even close to E1! Decent route, but climbing not quite as good as the line promises.

Albie 10 Oct, 2009 Lead O/S Looks like we have a recent rockfall here. All of the promised hand holds and gear placement have fallen out and it's still loose. I resorted to climbing and clipping on the neighbouring E1 5b climb to escape the loose rock. After that it was plain sailing but there was really very little gear in the upper section.

mick1jones 15 Aug, 2009 TR O/S I'm gonna lead this - such a good line and mostly well protected. Definite 5a move at crux but protectable (I think) and holds better higher but committing
