βeta: Very similar to Spontaneous Cattle Combustion, interesting route finding between good pockets followed by a one move tricky crux with feet above the last runner. It will take the place of SCC as everyone's first 7a on-sight. It's really only 6c plus but fortunately won't get demoted till the next guide.
