βeta: If you were 2" taller you'd have found it a lot easier, as would I. Pulling away from the ledge with fully stretched arms makes it hard. Once you've done that it is OK.

βeta: Should have a reach symbol! The first hold at the start of the crux sequence is virtually impossible to reach by non lankys!

julesmckim 10 Feb Lead dnf Found a sequence but then couldn't do it on the redpoint, found a much better sequence but then couldn't do that on the redpoint either. Aaargghh! Lack of decent footholds just above the ledge the main difficulty plus a series of slopey crimps.
