βeta: Agreed and agreed John. Not seen much traffic on the route over the years, so it can pick up dirt. Yes, the fall from the bottom of the scoop can be nasty. That being said, neither of these affect the technical difficulty of the route.

βeta: Unlike Ben I found it quite hard for the grade. I scooped some more dirt off the first mantle. I thought the bolt which protects the second mantle was unnecessarily and dangerously low (and I'm a shortie).
